Hats

WOOL

WATER

If your wool hat gets wet, allow it to dry naturally, do not blow dry it.  

Although wool repels water naturally, we do not recommend allowing the hat to get soaked. If a hat gets soaked it will warp and change shapes. If this happen, follow these instructions:

Start by steaming the hat in sections - try steaming the hat slowly and tackle the hats in 4 sections. Start with the back right corner, then move to the back left corner, move your way to the front of the hat until you steam it all thoroughly. You can slowly mend the hat back into shape with your hands as you steam it. Steaming the hat will make it soft and malleable, but be careful not to burn yourself with the steam - gloves are a good way to protect yourself from a steam burn.

To steam the hat, you can use a handheld steamer, a teapot or steam it over pot of boiling water.

STAINS

Blot the stain with a slightly damp white cloth until all the moisture is absorbed. Use a white cloth so no dye transfers to the hat. Spray the stain with a natural upholstery cleaner. We recommend Folex Carpet Spot Remover. For more severe stains, we suggest taking your hat to a local hat repair shop.

WRINKLES + CREASING

Keep out of direct sunlight. Store in a dry place. 


STORAGE

Store the hat in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. We recommend that you store the hat on its crown instead of the brim since storing a hat on its brim will cause it to change shape.

CLEANING

Brush the hat with a soft bristle brush counter clock-wise to remove surface dirt. Stubborn lint is easily removed with a lint roller. We recommend brushing or lint rolling once a week if used regularly.

STRAW

MAITENANCE

We recommend you steam your hat a couple of times a year (steam more often if you're in dry climate) to keep the straw moist and prevent it from drying out, which can lead to cracking. You can use a handheld steamer or hold the hat over a pot of steaming water -- we recommend using oven mitts to prevent a steam burn. To steam the hat, start by steaming the inside of the crown and making your way out to the brim. If the brim is misshapen, you can gently mend it with your hands as you steam it. Turn it upside down and steam the exterior part of the hat as well. If the brim or crown have changed shapes, gently mend the brim and/or crown to return it to its original shape.

HANDLING

Straw hats are made of natural toquilla straw in Ecuador. The material is delicate so handing the hat by its brim is recommended as the oils in our hands can dry out the straw and cause it to crack over time.

STORAGE

Store the hat in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. We recommend that you store the hat on its crown instead of the brim since storing a hat on its brim will cause it to change shape.

CLEANING

Brush the hat with a soft bristle brush to remove surface dirt.

WATER

We do not recommend you wear the hat in the rain as water can cause the straw to soften and change shapes.
