Care + Additional Info
The straws of the palm are cut, boiled and dried before they are woven into hats. The dyes used in all of the colored hats are certified organic, and their hue may evolve over time as they are exposed to the sun and elements.
No two hats are identical, which Freya believes adds to their authenticity and beauty. With proper care, your Freya hat should last a lifetime. Hats may be wiped clean with a tightly woven cloth. Freya recommends protecting the hat from rain and excessive moisture. If the hat does get too wet and loses some of its shape, a handheld steamer along with some targeted manipulation will help you restore misshapen areas of the crown and brim. A hair dryer can be helpful in hardening the softened fibers into place. An iron can also be used following the steamer for a bent brim.
