Why shop The Hip Hat

Reasons to Shop The Hip Hat


Limited Availability

The Hip Hat offers only a small number of items per collection, making sure that there is no overstock and also creating a more valued item as our customers know that these have been handcrafted in limited numbers or even exclusively for them. Our small collections transcend seasons and trends, and our catalog is simple, ever-changing, detailed, and forthright. 

Direct Sourcing

Because the founder of our brand is from Ecuador, we have the luxury of working directly with toquilla fiber growers, merino wool, and other natural and renewable material suppliers, as well as skilled Panama hat weavers, wool hat makers, and other artisans. This direct relationship with our partners in Ecuador means that we can offer our customers authentic, luxury quality, and beautifully hand-crafted hats and other accessories straight from the hands of the artisans who make them for our customers. 


We pride ourselves on being transparent and honest with the excellent and competitive prices we offer. 


Not only do we use natural and renewable materials for all our hats and accessories, but we also use leftover fabrics from the local textile industry to create our collections. This is a great way to make use of pre-existing textiles that otherwise would have been discarded. Also, as a Zero-waste goal brand, The Hip Hat includes a specialty recyclable and custom-made hat box, appropriate for travel and storage, when shipping its hats.
