Part of the reason the UK is the centre of the hat industry is that its manufacturing is second to none, but it’s also to do with the Queen and Punk. We love tradition and we love to rip it all down and start again. Convention, and tearing convention up. @noelstewart talking today at @mulberryengland #hat #hats #lfw #mulberry #fashion #fashionrevolution #queen #punk #hatstyle
Hats give you power and protection, similar to make-up or new shoes. That’s the essence of fashion - it gives you power @noelstewart speaking @mulberryengland on collaboration #hats #hatfashion #lfw
What an inspirational pair. We were fortunate to be invited to Hills House on New Year’s Day a few years ago, Isabella Blow’s home where Alexander was a frequent guest, to meet Detmar and her sister Lavinia. Such a pleasure. #Repost @philiptreacy

Out Mariner hat has all the style of a classic Panama hat, in ivory with its navy trim, but it also has a slightly more relaxed casual feel because of its twisted weave. This clever weaving technique means that this hat is also rollable! Roll it in one of our tubes and pack it in your case - no more leaving your hat in the overhead locker or back of the taxi whilst travelling to your destination! Our hats are ethically made using traditional weaving techniques that have been passed through generations. See more of our hats and about what we believe in - see link in profile.

Dreaming of summer sunshine? - we are! We make beautiful fair trade hats for men and women for those lovely holidays in the sun! Our handwoven Teardrop Fedora has a c shaped crown and is a great alternative to the traditional Fedora style Panama hat.  Our sand coloured version is trimmed with a navy band with a classic bow, our ivory version is trimmed in black. Of course we can also fit bespoke bands to our hats too from the lovely ribbons in our haberdashery!

The Aficionado Classic Fedora demonstrates the amazing skill of Pachacuti's Panama hat weavers. Each hat has approximately 20 strands of straw carefully woven together into each square inch equating to 400 weaves per square inch. It takes a skilled weaver at least two weeks to weave the Pachacuti Aficionado Panama!

The fibres of the Carloludovica Palmata being hand woven into our Panama hats. Our skilled weavers in Ecuador have passed these traditional skills through  generations. Some of our superfine weave hats take up to 6 weeks to weave.

This is the beautiful Carloludovica Palmata, cultivated in Ecuador for its fibres, from which our Panama hats are handwoven using skills passed down through generations of weavers. As our hats are made from natural fibres at the end of their (often very long) lives they can be composted, creating little environmental impact. Straw for our hats can be cut monthly from the Carludovica Palmata for around 100 years - surely one of the most sustainable sources of raw materials in the world!
