How to care for your hat
ON A SHELF
When storing on a shelf, it’s important to flip the hat upside down and store it on its crown, not its brim. Storing your hat on your brim for a long period of time will put pressure on the brim causing it to change from its original shape.
HANG IT ON THE WALL
You can hang your hat on a nail on the wall, but we suggest covering the tip of the nail with a foam ball, so that the sharp tip of the nail does not damage your hat.
STORING IT IN A HAT BOX
Storing your hat in a box is our suggested recommendation. Make sure you store the box in a cool dry place. We strongly recommend that you do not put our straw hats in a plastic bag, the lack of air dries the straw out and can cause it to break. Our hats are made from natural materials and can change color and shape if exposed to long periods of heat and moisture.
Do not store your hat in your car, the exposure to prolonged sunlight and heat will discolor and distort the shape
CLEANING YOUR HAT
You may wipe small spots with a slightly damp white cloth. Do not use a cloth with dye, as the dye may transfer to the hat.
For more severe stains, we suggest taking your hat to a local hat repair shop to professionally clean it.
Avoid getting our Panama hats wet, the natural fibers will expand and distort the shape.
