MATERIALS + PROCESS

Minga hats are handcrafted by a generational family of hat makers in Ecuador. Each and every hat is made by hand, one by one, using the finest wool and finishings. Each Minga hat goes through an incredibly intensive process to create the final shape. After preparing the wool hat blank, our artisan partners use a press to create the hat shape. Once it’s formed, it’s carefully trimmed, ironed, cleaned and sewn. This means that no two hats 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. 

Inspired by generational craftsmanship, we honor our artisan communities as individuals and artists and celebrate a craft that’s been around for generations. We are committed to creating products that support heirloom practices.

A One-of-a-Kind Handcrafted Hat

We partner with a family-ran hat workshop to make hat one by one. After preparing the wool hat blank, our artisan partners use a press to create the hat shape. Once it’s formed, it’s carefully trimmed, ironed, cleaned and sewn.

Made from Natural Fibers + Materials

We work with raw materials, like wool and paja toquilla straw, to make all of our hats. We also use vegtable-tanned, handcrafted leather accessories that are built to last. We do our best to cut down on waste and consider each step of the process in our work.
