Minga works to highlight and support traditional craft techniques and the people who practice them. These gorgeous, utilitarian wool hats are no exception.
Emily, founder of Minga, partners with a talented crew of fourth generation hat makers to keep the traditional craft techniques alive. Led by Zoila, modern designs are brought to life using traditional methods and all hats are hand shaped, pressed, cut, lined, and finished, making each hat one-of-a-kind.
Using 100% wool felt from Ecuador, this boater hat is accented with a veg-tanned leather band. Wool is nature's wonder-material, with incredible natural properties like anti-bacterial, anti-order, and most impressive, temperature regulating.
The perfect adventure hat no matter the season, leaving you cool and dry in the summer, warm in the winter.
