All of the colorings on this hat were completed using a long-lasting vegetable-based dye. Its dual layer of fine woven Raffia allows the hat to offer UPF 50+/SPF 30+ sun protection.

When reshaping is required spray a little water on the hat and use a steam iron on a low to medium heat on the inside of the hat and lightly press being careful and not overpress, while the desired shape is achieved allow the hat to air dry completely away from the direct sunlight, this step will bring your hat back to shape.
