CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR HAT

Avoid, of course, sit on it, fold it or put it in the bottom of your suitcase!
Wear it on the head, take the cinema, the Opera, the countryside to uncle Fernand or on the beach of Copacabana ….
In short, make it live at your own pace!

Your hat in tauped felt
or in waterproof tauped felt*

 

Herbes folles v1
The tauped felt is the superior quality of the felt.

The raw material is in the form of a cone and thirteen steps are necessary to manufacture your hat: blow molding, basing, foaming, crushing, dyeing and then it is formed on our molds before the finishes in the workshop.

Thanks to its primer, it resists a fine rain. If it gets wet, let it dry out of a heat source, then brush it with a suede brush.

If you do a task, sprinkle it with soil of Sommières, let act and brush.

So that your hat stays beautiful … hang it on a hook or put it on a pretty hat-holder!

Finally, if you wish, we can refurbish your hat. We also offer a package to change the large grain (only for hats from home!)

Small Tip

To remove small dust pass
Delicately a nubuck brush…
this makes wonderful things !

*Waterproof tauped felt: this felt is more compact and
resistant to heavy rainfall… but avoid
nevertheless to remain “planted” under a gutter !!!

So that your hat stays beautiful … hang it on a hook or put it on a pretty hat-holder!

Your straw hat from Ecuador,
called “Panama”

 

panama
One might think that the hat “Panama” comes from Panama … and yet not!

The “Panama” comes exclusively from Ecuador. In 1881 the workers who were digging the Panama Canal wore this hat, and President Theodore Roosevelt visited the shipyard with one of these “Panama” and made it popular by making headlines in the whole world.

The “Panama” is made by hand by weavers who extract with their nails the fibers of the leaves of the dried palms. Then the hat is woven in the tradition according to which one can see at the top of the cap the beginning of the weaving in the form of rosette, sign of its authenticity. Behind each “Panama”, there is a story, a man or a woman, its universe and above all a know-how peculiar to the Ecuadorians … each “Panama” is unique.

Avoid wearing it in the rain, roll it and pinch it too hard by placing it on your head.

From time to time keep it above the steam of an electric kettle or a pan of water to moisten it so that it keeps its suppleness.

If you are doing a task, gently swab a cotton soaked in scarlet water.

So that your hat stays beautiful… hang it on a hook or put it on a pretty hat-holder!

Finally, if you wish, we can refurbish your hat. We also offer a package to change the grosgrain (only for hats from home!)
