How to care for your hat
Taking care of your hat correctly will ensure it has a long life and you can enjoy it for many years.
We provide cleaning instructions under each product description on our website.
It is important to understand the fabric of your hat before throwing it in the wash. Natural fibres are more susceptible to shrinkage. That is why we suggest hand washing your items.
Spot clean the dirty area with a damp cloth and mild detergent
Hand wash in cold water
Do not soak
Gently steam/cool iron to remove creases
To clean, wipe with a damp cloth
Stuff the crown with tissue paper to keep shape
Store hat upside down on crown. Keeping in on a flat surface will cause the brim to lose its shape.
Gently steam and use your fingers to reshape your straw hat if needed
You can also use an iron to press put any damages. Make sure to use on a low heat/use a towel or cloth between the hat and iron to ensure straw does not burn
Avoid getting your straw hat wet. Water will damage the straw and it will lose its shape
To reshape brim, place on a flat surface and pack heavy items on brim (eg books). Keep over night
DO NOT dry clean
DO NOT wash
Remove lint from your hat using a lint brush or sticky tape
If your hat gets wet in the rain make sure to try it as quickly as possible
Store your hat in a hat box or clean surface. Stuff the crown with colourless tissue paper
Store in a dry ventilated room, away from moisture and direct sunlight
Hold your hat on the inside of the crown and not the brim
