Straw and Sun Hats



THE STORY OF OUR STRAW HATS

The majority of our Aerial Black Tag Fashion Straw Hats are made of a combination of Narrow leaf cattail (Typha angustifolia) & Soft Rush (Juncus Effusus) straws or Scutellaria Georgi straw.
Straw is a natural plant material that is biodegradable.

what are straw hats made from
This straw is harvested and dried. 
Once dry, this is woven to create a base ‘cloth’, known as a felt. This is typically done at home.

This felt is sent to the factory where it is pressed into a mould that creates the shape of the hat.

Then the brim is trimmed, and the embellishments, care label and swing tag are added.

Finally, these straw hats are packed, fumigated and shipped to Australia where we distribute to your local Petrol and Convenience store.

We’d love to see photos of you in your Aerial straw hat.
