HAT SIZING & CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Most of our hats are made in one size fits all and are affixed with elastic and a comb. Full size boaters or crown and brim hats can be made to size.
If you do not know your hat size, carefully measure your head using a flexible tape measure.
To ensure you measure the circumference of your head correctly, the tape measure needs to be over the middle of your forehead, just above your ears and sit midway at the back of your head. Do not pull the tape too tightly unless you want your hat to be as tight. Measure yourself 2-3 times just to be as accurate as possible.
If you do not have a flexible tape measure, use a piece of string. Once you have measured your circumference and marked the string, lie it flat and measure it. eg 57cm or 22 1/4 inches.
Most of our pieces are made using straw or paper material which will lose their shape if they get wet. Do not wear your hat in the rain and avoid getting it damp or wet.
Sometimes flowers can get slightly squashed in transportation. A quick steam over a kettle or clothes steamer will fluff them back up but be careful not to apply steam to the main body of the hat. Should your hat get wet or damp, reshape and leave in a dry and warm environment to stiffen again.
Repairs can be made to your piece to refresh for the next wear – please contact us if there has been any damage or misshaping and we will do our best to restore the hat to it’s original condition at a small cost.
