Sizing & Care

Finding your hat size

To find your personal hat size, you will have to measure the circumference of your head with either a flexible tape-measure or a long piece of fabric (i.e. scarf or string) and a ruler. With the flexible tape measure simply connect it at the ends around your head to find the circumference. With the piece of fabric, connect it at the ends around your head and measure from the endpoint to get your head circumference. 

If you are in between sizes or your hat is too big, we recommend purchasing a hat size reducer insert (similar to this) to put within the inside brim. If your hat is too small, stretch your hat using a steamer along the inside brim to loosen the natural fibers and lightly stretch the hat with your hands.

Caring for your hat

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. 

Re-flatten or shaping the brim of your hat

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.

 


 

Caring for your bag

Cabuya, the natural plant fiber we use for our bags, is plant dyed and spun by hand. Cabuya is a very strong and durable fiber, and it also softens and its character deepens with wear.

If you end up with a spot or stain on your bag, gently rub the spot with a damp white towel using a gentle, natural soap. It is important to understand that natural, plant-dyed fibers should be washed by hand in cold water and limited chemicals. Given it’s all-natural makeup, using harsh detergents or machine washing your bag will result in color fade. Hang or sit out to dry.
