These care instructions apply to packable straw, specialty straw, and wool hats.

01 / Protect + Clean

Protect your hat from dirt and stains with our Hat Care Kit, which includes a protective spray designed for Wool and Panama Straw styles.

For small spots, use a slightly damp light-colored cloth without dye to blot out any stains. Be careful not to get your hat too wet when cleaning as the natural fibers may expand and distort the shape.

If you have a felt hat with a stain, try using a felt sponge or hat brush to clean the spots. For more stubborn stains, it’s best to take your felt hat to a professional hat repair shop.

02 / Pack + Store

Our packable straw hats are made with a durable fiber that allows you to roll and pack them for up to 1 day. To protect your hat during travel, surround it with soft items, avoid placing heavy objects on top, and keep products that might spill away. Make sure the hat is completely dry before packing.

How to Store Your Hat:

- On a shelf: Turn the hat upside down and store it on its crown to keep its original shape. 

- Hang it on the wall: Cover the nail tip with a foam ball before hanging the hat to prevent damage.

- Store it in a hat box: This is the best way to store your hat. The box we provide has a protective ring to a the brim and allow the crown to be suspended. Keep the box in a cool, dry place.

Wool hats can be stored in plastic bags, but don't put Panama straw hats in them as they need air to prevent breakage.

03 / Restore

Applying steam to the fibers is an easy solution if you need to restore or reshape your hat. We suggest using a traditional garment steamer to remove creases from the brim, crown, or band. Apply steam evenly around the hat to avoid direct contact and water spots. Once the hat is warm to the touch without being soaked, gently reshape it with your hands or place it on a flat surface and use heavy objects to flatten the brim. Let it dry in that position for best results, preferably overnight. This technique can be applied to our packable straw, specialty straw, wool, and fabric hats.

01 / Clean

To ensure the longevity of your wool sweater, it is recommended to hand wash it using cold water and similar colors. Afterward, lay it flat to dry or professionally clean it with a green dry cleaner.

02 / Store 

To keep your sweaters in good condition, store them in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight. It is recommended to fold wool sweaters to maintain their shape and prevent wrinkles. Avoid hanging your wool sweater, as it may cause stretching or damage. To protect against dust and insects like moths, store your sweaters in a cotton bag, bin, or box.

03 / Restore

Over time, it is common for wool sweaters to develop pills. To reduce pilling, cleaning and storing your sweater properly is important. You can easily remove unwanted pills using a sweater stone or fabric shaver.
