The Handcrafted Boater Hat is truly up for everything and will be a trustworthy companion for years to come. This hat is made by hand with 100% wool felt and a handmade vegetable-tanned leather band that doubles as a necktie that cinches to make it wearable in all-weather. Versatile wool creates warmth in the winter and keeps you dry in the summer. The perfect adventure hat. Minga partners with a fourth generation family of hat-makers to highlight the traditional hat making process while adapting new, modern designs. Their hats are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to color.
