"Be Daring, Be Different, Be Impractical, Be Anything That Will Assert Integrity Of Purpose And Imaginative Vision Against The Play-It-Safers, The Creatures Of The Commonplace, The Slaves Of The Ordinary."
Having lived in 8 different countries, I have often been asked “Where are you from?”. If like me, you aren’t sure how to answer that question, you’re probably a Third Culture Kid. Indeed, I was born in Togo; raised as an expat child between Pakistan, Italy, and Kenya; attended university in France; and built my career as a creative entrepreneur between Dubai, Beirut, New York City and Barcelona. Lately, I have been calling Ibiza home.
A few years ago, I found myself yearning for a deeper sense of purpose. It became clear that I needed to incorporate creativity and craftsmanship into my life to re-ignite my inner fire ❤️🔥
Since then, I've immersed myself in objects that inspired me, connecting with talented craftsmen, exploring various professions, and fearlessly experimenting with different techniques. Through this playful exploration, I discovered the captivating world of hat making.
We believe in mindful, careful, and slow consumption. Fewer things, made in a better way bring us more joy. We work exclusively with natural and sustainably sourced materials and we prioritize local supplies.
Each piece we create is unique. Our hats are made with passion, audacity and poetry so that they embody the unique personality of the one who wears it.
All our hats are designed to last. They are made with time, love, and dedication using only high quality materials: rabbit and beaver fur felts, handwoven toquilla straw (panama), genuine leather headbands, silk inner linings and selected fabrics, jewlery, and accessories.
We support small businesses and fellow artisans. We partner with woodcarvers, tailors, weavers and leatherworkers to get the tools and materials for our hats. We cut, sew, assemble and finish every piece by hand in our workshop in Ibiza.
