Story Behind the Art:
This husband and wife team met traveling in Asia 17 years and have created a socially responsible initiative that supports many artisan groups in China. The hats from China are organized by families with whom they have worked for many years. They organize small tailoring groups where the tailors are paid by piece for their work. No factory or child labor is ever used. Workers are paid higher than average wages and are free to move on at any point. Typically there are waiting lists to become a tailor with this artisan groups. Most of the families we supported by this fair trade initiative have gone from having no running water, to purchasing land, motorized vehicles and sending their children to college. Thank you for supporting this ever growing initiative with great artisans that now have the ability to expose their products to the global market.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Needed a hat for gardening! This works well. It did have a bad smell at first, but I left it in my garage until I wore it and the smell dissipated.Read More
I have yet to wear this, but it is exactly as described.Read More
Purchased as a gift for Mother's Day for my mom... she travels often and likes hats. The color green is nicely dark and the hat folds. Hope that it comes out of the suitcase well for her next trip!Read More
This arrived by USPS within 2 days of ordering. It's very crushable/packable--no wires or stiff parts, but the material is also sturdy enough to hold the desired shape when you reshape it. The brim is wide not too big (4.5", just as described) and the tie decoration is not too frilly (though if you wanted to remove it you could easily snip the threads holding it in place). Tag reads: UPF 50+ blocks 98% UVA/UVB; ribbon material is 100% polyester.Read More
I bought this hat for a cruise vacation. I love it! I'm very sun-sensitive and it works great in covering my head and neck. Also it is very fashionable, looks great on.Read More
I purchased the black color and it was true to the picture. Very cute and stylish hat. I wore it to an all-day BBQ on the beach and i got a lot of compliments. It stayed on securely with the slight breeze and protected most of my face from the sun. I packed it in my bag the night before and true enough, it popped right back into its shape when i wanted to wear it. Great hat and I would recommend it.Read More
I was anxious about my first cruise and knew I'd need a hat in the Caribbean. I literally stuffed it in and out of the suitcase, purse, beach tote, etc. and it still looks as good as new!Read More
