Woven canvas with different panels sewn together. In the shape of a half circle, with straight ends; one end is wider than the other. 3 main panels: outter brim, sides and top. The outter brim is attached at the bottom edge, but is loose at the top and follows the shape of the side panels, only is slightly smaller. When opened, the top is an oval shape. Narrative: Cap made in camp Athlit, Palestine. Material used came from ship S.S.Patria which was sunk in the port of Haifa. Original owner, Erich Winterstein, did not know how to swim; he clung to the wreckage until he was rescued by the British army.
