The Felt Ring
Historically,the art of Chapeaugraphy was performed with a ring of heavy wool felt. The Chap-O is made from the more modern ployester fibers but is just as heavy and retains its shape as well or better.
The fun generated by a few minutes in front of the mirror with a Chap-O is based on the fact that the challenge brings out the imagination in all of us. Playing characters or just making faces releases trhe playful child in us all freeing us, if only momentarily from the stresses of real life.
Beyond performance art and imagination play the Chap-O also makes a unique fachion accessory providing shelter from the sun or a creative solution to a bad hair day.
