How To Find The Right Size?

  • Use a tape measure or some string and wrap around your head at the point that you want the hat to sit (pull the tape snug and see if it feels right). For the majority this is the widest point of your head, about 2cm above your ears, on the upper side of the “lump” in the back of your head and across your forehead. The measurement you will get will be in cm.

As a Gift:

  • The most popular size for ladies is 56 and for gentlemen a size 58.
  • Materials: 100% natural "Toquilla" straw and standard black ribbon grosgrain hatband. 

Cleaning: 

  • Wipe down the hat with a soft wet cloth such as a facial or baby wipes (to prevent any catching). Do not use brushes, soap or detergent.  

Maintenance:

  • If the hat gets creases from travelling or from cleaning, carefully use an iron on steamed mode, place on top of a lightly wet cloth to bring back the hat to its natural shape.
