Maline is Vintage from early 1900. I have not found any vintage silk Maline for sale anywhere in the world other than www.hatsupply.com to this point in time. Since it is silk and from from early 1900 s it is very fragile which is precisely what makes it so very cool. When using materials it is wise to do what the material does best. One can tear the Maline to make flowers and trim in the shabby chic tradition. It has a very beautiful effect.
Valentino uses Maline.
Note the Maline flower on the shoulder.
