What are the hats made from:
We currently use rabbit felt which is felted angora. The felt comes from Europe with EU standards for care and rabbits are killed in the process.
The straw is from Ecuador and is made with fair trade standards.
Where do you make things:
All hats are hand blocked in traditional millinery fashion.
Everything is made in house in Nevada City, California.
How to find your hat size:
Find the place you want your hat to sit. Most commonly people prefer about one inch above the eyebrows and about a half inch above the ears. It can different based on each persons preference on where they want their hat to sit. Using a string or soft measuring tape measure that distance and then triple check to make sure.

If you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up and getting a hat size reducer which is basically pieces of weatherstripping you can find at any hardware store.
