Composition & Care
Outer fabric composition: 100% Natural Raffia
Inner fabric composition: Unlined
Raffia has a natural resin making it innately soft, supple and resilient; Unlike straw, raffia has longevity and won’t crack or get brittle over time.
Refreshing & Reshape
Applying light steam will draw out the resin and help bring back its shape. Stuff the crown with colourless, acid free tissue paper first, and use your hands whilst it is drying naturally. The resin might be visible when you steam darker coloured raffia. Simply brush it off with a soft dry cloth or brush once dry. Allow to cool and dry naturally in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight.
Trim small fly away fibres with a sharp pair of scissors.
Spot clean with a soft damp cloth, mild detergent and cold water. Allow it to dry naturally in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. Consult a professional dry cleaner for stain removal.
Do not wash. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
Always hold hat by the inside of the crown, rather than the brim.
Avoid placing hats with brims that point down on a flat surface as this will cause the brim to lose its shape.
If you have fedora, don’t hold it by the pinch at the front as this can cause delicate materials to damage over time.
