I love this stylish witch's hat. It has great character.


A Matter Of Choice

The sorting hat of Harry Potter fame stays in the headmaster's office until it is called upon once a year to decide where the new boys will go. It originally belonged to Gryffindor, one of four founders of the school. To keep the original intent of the founders alive, they bewitched the hat, making it a thinking magical hat.

It could talk as well, and sometimes would foretell the future. And there's a face in it when you look closely enough, that is how it talks. It sang a new song of its own creation to introduce the sorting ceremony each year. Then each boy would wear the hat and be decided according to his own disposition and history.

A Well Used Hat With Personality

I love the sorting hat name and the look, all beat up and patched, obviously a well loved possession. Those things that are cherished and used often have deeper meaning. They are bound to their owners as if by blood. And so it is with Gryffindor's sorting hat. It is history bound to the present. It is the evolution of past into present and the portal to the future.

There Is No Hat Like A Power Hat

With its pointy top, it is obviously a witch's hat, but with such care and individuality attached and bred in, sewn and lovingly patched into the garment, the sorting hat is a thing of wonder. It is a decisive and powerful hat and something in me craves that. I want one very much or my collection can never be complete.
