Straw hats can be spot-cleaned with a damp cloth. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic to our waterways.
Always let your hat dry naturally. If your hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.
Many of our straw hats come with a wire in the brim so you can shape the hat to match your style. With a little practice you can reshape your hat brim easily. Western styles are generally worn with the brim turned up on the sides and Australian style hats look great with a dip in the front and the back.
COVID 19 resulted in the hat taking a long time to arrive....but worth the wait.
Very stylish, perfect fit and I love the secret pocket!!!
Love my new hat!
This is my second Fairhope hat. Loved the first one so much I now have one for hiking and one for casual walking around town. The UPF 50 and chin cord were features I wanted. I do appreciate all the other thoughtful characteristics as well. Perhaps I need one in black too?
