details & care
Our wide-brimmed straw hats are made by a new group of artisans in a small mountain town near Cuenca, Ecuador. We partner with a fourth and fifth generation family of hat-makers to add the finishing touches.
Our hats are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each hat and band.
100% Ecuadorian Toquilla Straw
- Wide Brim 8.5cm
- Stiff + Durable
- Veg-tanned double wrapped leather tie
- Crafted and pressed by hand
Sizing for this hat is very different than our normal sizing. Please measure your head and choose your exact measurement, please. If you are in between sizes or unsure of your hat size we recommend sizing up and using a hat filler or hat sizing tape for the perfect fit.
If your hat needs a tune-up, we recommend using a soft bristle brush or lint roller to lightly clean it. If you have any stains on your hat, you can use an all-natural soap and white damp cloth to remove the stain. On our wool hats, stains may come out by using sandpaper. If your hat gets wet, allow it to dry on a flat surface so it maintains its shape.
If your hat is losing it’s shape or stiffness, you can easily reshape it at home. You will need an iron, ironing board, and damp sheet or cloth. Place the hat on an ironing board with a damp sheet covering brim where the iron will make contact. This will avoid the iron burning or scaring your hat. With steam, gradually iron the brim of your hat. Once done ironing, let your hat cool on a hard and flat surface for at least 10 mins.
