Freya hats are handmade in Ecuador by artisans and family-owned businesses where traditional craftsmanship is apprenticed from one generation of women to the next. The palms are harvested and prepared for weaving in the villages through a traditional, manual process that takes approximately two days. The brand honors their genius through a diverse selection of hats which are all certified to exceed UPF 50 protection.
The Natural Gardenia Hat is ready for adventure! Featuring an open-weave crown with grosgrain ribbon details, this is a must-have for sun protection. Bohemian and beachy, you will want to wear this with everything from denim shorts to day dresses.

Care: Hats should be stored upside down with their crown down. Don’t pack a hat in a suitcase. If you don't travel with a hatbox, wear it or carry it until you find a safe spot to rest your hat and your head during your travels.
Note: Because the hats are freshly woven, sometimes they arrive a bit stiff. We recommend running a steamer on hats that arrive misshapen. You can flip the brims down and steam them back to shape. They should loosen over time as well.
