Chapeaugraphy: Based on the French word 'chapeaux' for hat, the art involves taking a ring of heavy felt and twisting and shaping it into a series of  different hat designs.  Invented almost 250 years ago by a French comedian, the art has been relegated to just a handful of performance artists...until now.  The Chap-OTM from FingerPrints Design is making this almost lost art available for everyone to enjoy.
