Most of our wool comes from Australia and some from New Zealand and South Africa. Many styles are waterproof, crushable and provide excellent sun protection, making it an awesome material to craft safari hats.
There are three different materials that we use cotton to make our Safari Hats. First is just pure Organic Cotton. It makes sense to use organic cotton in our hats wherever possible and this is why: it’s safer for farmers and supports a sustainable system. Waxed Cotton and Weathered Cotton Safari Hats both provide great protection from the rain.
Our Straw Safari Hats use either Organic Raffia or 100% Recycled Paper. Raffia palm leaves are the longest leaves in the plant kingdom. The leaves are cut without harming the plant so they regrow which makes Raffia a renewable resource and an excellent source to produce straw Safari / Pith Helmets.
Our 100% Recycled Paper Straw Hats are coated with a non-toxic resin to keep them water resistant and strong. The thin strips of material are made by a machine but then each hat is braided into a new hat by skilled craftsmen and women.
Pith helmets date as far back as the 1840's and became popular with the military in Europe's tropical colonies. Features a comfortable terry inner size adjustment and brass eyelets. Very durable. Personally I think Pith helmets have a silly name, but will still wear one proudly when the time arrives.
