In any arena, sustainability has to be at the forefront of development and evolution. Protecting the environment is a primary concern. It is fundamental and should be the core of every brand's philosophy. The biodegradable packaging took six months longer than we thought as there was no compromise in obtaining only biodegradable solutions. All the hats are either raffia or papier, a sustainably sourced material made from recycled materials. Our fabrics are handwoven and then sent on to be hand woven into packable womens hats by artisans in Italy. We aim to continue to develop our collections with all these elements considered.

BIODEGRADABLE STORING SLEEVE
We have worked with our suppliers on producing a biodegradable sleeve option for you to store your Le Hat in while travelling. Made from biodegradable plastic. We encourage you to reuse this for continual storage while travelling. If you no longer require the sleeve then please recycle accordingly or return to us.
At Le Hat our final stage of packaging will conclude with a 100% recyclable kraft box. We have been reassured that all manufactured waste is disposed of responsibly making sure the recyclable loop is maintained and fully optimised in conjunction with the UK packaging regulations.
We currently offer size 57cm and 59cm in Le Hats. All are sized at approximate measurements as they are handmade and size can vary by 0.5-1cm. Nevertheless you will be able to easily adjust the hat from the inside with a drawstring tie. If you need a smaller size, simply pull the drawstring from the inner sweatband and tie a bow to secure it. You have the capacity here to reduce the size by 2cm.
We have illustrated a few simple steps to ensure you’re measuring your head properly before purchase. In order to do this you will need a cloth tape measure. It would help if you also had some assistance from another person, just to ensure accuracy. Please note that we measure in centimeters.
HOW SHOULD I WEAR MY HAT?
We’ve listed two options of wearing your hat. It is essential to measure your hat to fit as per your preferred option as there are significant differences.
The ‘halo’ is placed above your forehead and slightly angled toward the back of the head.
1. Place your measuring tape around your head starting at the furthest part of the back of your head.
2. Bring the tape measure round to the front of your head and finish just above your hairline. Ensure your tape measure is about 3-5mm above your earlobes on the side.
The ‘traditional’ way of wearing your hat is shown below sitting perfectly on the top of your head.
