Based in LA each piece is handmade using a consistent foundation of the highest quality material- yielding pieces that can be worn through many seasons. When cared for properly, Panama straw will last a lifetime. We only use wool that is sustainable and cruelty free. Our 100% virgin wool is taken from a lamb’s first shearing resulting in the softest, finest wool available. We clean, scour, and dye our wool in our employee owned factory right here in the United States. From shearing the wool to hand polishing a finished body, our hats pass through 50 skilled artisan’s hands.
