About us

Sustainable. Local. Handmade 

Sustainable:

With a desire to create sustainable fashion pieces with a purpose, Freya Hats was established. Freya Hats has a steadfast commitment to sustainability so we try be as sustainable as possible - from production to packaging. Each hat is packaged in our custom-made drawstring bags which are reusable and plastic-free. These bags are made from end of roll or discarded fabric. Our straw and felt hats are delivered in reused cardboard boxes. Our hats are gender-inclusive, made for the fashion-forward individual.

Local:

Each hat is handmade locally from natural fibres or up-cycled materials. The hats were first made from discarded fabric sample books and as we evolved so did our fabric options. All our hats are made by female-owned CMTs based in South Africa. We also believe in supporting our local communities. Therefore, a portion of all profits is donated to charities which support women and children in need.  

A percentage of all sales is donated to various charities which support women and children in need. We have an ongoing collaboration with The CORA Project. 100% of profits from the sale of the CORA hat is donated to The CORA Project with the aim to help fight period poverty in South Africa. 

Handmade:

We embrace slow fashion while designing quality pieces that transcend the seasons. Each hat is designed and handmade with love. 

Our Name:
