CLEANING

There is a tag on each hat that has cleaning instructions. We recommend hand wash in cold water using a mild liquid hand soap or spot wash where indicated. Air dry. Do not use bleach, Woolite® or dry clean. Gently steam to remove any creases or wrinkles.
Spot Clean with Care: Gigi, Amy, Morgan, Roxy, Kristy hats are not hand washable.

Watch these videos for helpful cleaning tips.

 


PACKING

Ideal for travelling! You can pack and flatten most of our hats into your suitcase or backpack and they simply bounce back on arrival.

Refer to the swing tag, above fabric features and care chart, or watch our packing videos!

  1. Crush Resistant: Push the crown of the hat straight down to flatten out the hat. Lay flat in your suitcase so that it won't get folded or creased
  2. Crushable: Soft sun hats - Some styles can be stuffed in your bag, and you're ready to go.
  3. Crush Resistant: Taco fold certain styles by pulling the sides of the brim up to the crown
  4. Handle with Love: Select styles that should be handled with care can still be packed, but should never be squashed. To pack these styles, pack your clothes around the edges of your case leaving the middle of your case free for your hat. Place your hat upside down inside your case, and put scarves and other soft accessories inside the hat.

Watch these videos for handy packing tips on our different hat styles.
