We all know the old slip, slop and slap routine, right? Growing up in the hot Aussie summer taught us that if you don’t follow those three crucial steps, you’ll pay for it the next day. Nobody has time to worry about bright, red burns and peeling skin, not to mention the risk of skin cancer. Yet we also don’t want to step outside in our gorgeous dress or new bikini with a daggy hat on our head either.
That’s why we are so excited to introduce to you our new and absolutely gorgeous Cali Hats. Bright, colourful and bold, our Cali Hats are completely handmade by local artisans in Columbia. Each hat takes eight hours to create using a special diagonal weaving technique that produces a stunning and sturdy hat that’s not only fashionable, but protects your delicate skin from the harsh sun.
Chuchka Cali Hats are handmade by Columbian artisans and we are committed to supporting these traditional communities by stocking these unique pieces. Cali Hats are made of handwoven Iraka Plam straw and waterproof paint. Each Cali Hat has a natural variation in the weave due to the handmade process, so you can be sure your hat is one of a kind.
Cali Hats are also insanely versatile. Depending on the occasion, you can wear the brim up, down or half up/half down. It’s simple to move the brim to your desired shape and you don’t need to worry about bending it out of shape – the hats bounce back to their original shape with ease.
Not only will you turn heads wherever you go with your vibrant and colourful Cali Hat, you’ll also be helping us to support local artisans in Columbia. We think it’s a win-win really. Buy the greatest new addition to your summer wardrobe collection right here.
