Russian Revolution Budenovka Hat


Now here is an unique Christmas present you probably won't find under the Christmas tree in too many homes.................. A Russian Revolution, Budenovka Hat! (Pronounced boo-dyo-noh-vkah)

Thanks for the great gift N8!

Here's a bit of history about this great hat......


The hat is a Russian made reproduction of the original Russian Revolution military hats of 1917. It is a communist version of the old Russian Army hat used during the years before. The hat was redesigned in the years that followed 1917, in various fabrics and styles. This hat is sewn out of a very course wool with a rough linen liner. It is trimmed in red cloth with a large red cloth star, with a Russian star pin in the center. The hat can be worn with flaps up or down......

Very cool and very fun hat.........and a hat with some history!



Here's some shots of my hat:

Remember watching the movie "The Winter War" (In Finnish -Talvisota. From 1989) when seeing this hat.
