Lay your hat upside down when setting it on a surface, rather than laying it down on its brim. This is important, since laying your hat on its brim could cause your hat to flatten or otherwise lose its shape.
Hang your hat on a hat hanger or place it in a hat box when storing it overnight or longer. This will help your hat to maintain its overall shape.
Grab your hat by the crown, not by the brim, when removing it from your head. This will help maintain the shape of the brim.
Avoid exposing your hat to high heat or humidity, as this could damage the felt fibers. For example, do not place your hat near a stove, heater or in a hot vehicle.
Flip up the sweatband of your hat after your hat has become damp from sweat, rain or hair products. To do this, lay your hat upside down on a flat surface and flip up the band found around the inside of the hat. Allow the hat to dry completely before it is worn again.
Remove dirt from your hat by brushing it with a hat brush designed for felt hats. Beginning on one side of the hat, brush the fabric in short, directional strokes, working toward the other side of the hat.
Tear off a small piece of masking tape and gently tap the sticky side against the surface of the hat. This will remove any remaining lint left by the hat brush.
Slightly dampen a clean cloth. Wipe the hat in short, directional strokes working from one side of the hat toward the other side. Allow the hat to dry completely before wearing it.
Straw hats can be spot-cleaned with a damp cloth. We recommend using plant-based soaps. Flip up the sweatband of your hat after your hat has become damp from sweat, rain or hair products. To do this, lay your hat upside down on a flat surface and flip up the band found around the inside of the hat. Allow the hat to dry completely before it is worn again.
Suede Leather Hats
A light-grade sandpaper or soft cleaning brush can be used to take out marks on suede hats. We have even used clear, soft erasers. Make sure the eraser is not coloured, as this can leave a mark. There are also many non-toxic, waterproof sprays available to give your hat added protection from stains and rain.
Cloth and Canvas Hats
It’s best to spot clean all cloth hats with a damp cloth using cold water, or hand-wash in a sink if necessary. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic for our waterways.
Our sizing is pretty simple, take a measuring tape and measure around your head where you'd like you hat to sit,
For some in-between sizes, and for some head shapes, greater comfort may be attained by placing our Wool Felt Hat Filler inside the sweatband.
Felt and Straw
Pick the sizing closest to your measurement, the beautiful thing about wool felt and our cotton and leather inner bands is how they will shape to your head, so if you head is a bit larger than the measurement the hat will stretch or if its a little bit smaller your hat will settle to fit nicely as you wear it. The softer the fit is is described the more quickly your hat will shape to you.
