The Raffia boater is a chic and sophisticated hat that elevates any outfit. Raffia is made up of fibres from the leaves of palm trees, native to tropical Africa and Madagascar. Our boater has a flat crown and narrow brim, finishing off with a petersham ribbon wrapping around the crown. Raffia is soft, pliable, strong and durable, making it an excellent material for weaving hats. It is a renewable resource that provides great sun protection and style. 


The easiest and most effective way to clean a raffia hat is to brush away any dirt or dust on it with a soft bristle brush. Alternatively, if you need to wash dirt off your hat, spray a solution of dish soap and hot water onto a cloth, then rub your hat in a circular motion. Next, put the hat in a cool place to dry. Raffia has a natural resistance to water but is not waterproof. When not bouncing around in your hat, keep it stored in a cool dry place/in a hat box to help it retain it's shape.
