CHOOSING YOUR HAT
The weaving and coloring techniques are unique and distinctive elements of the Ecuadorian straw hat, which define its value and level of quality.
The characteristic light color is typical of its straw weave. With exposure to sunlight, over time, the original color darkens slightly or takes on a lightly golden hue. This aspect further enhances the hat’s natural appearance.
The crown is trimmed on the outside with a matching color fabric of exquisite Italian manufacture; inside, the crown is lined with a protective band in cotton grosgrain or vegetable tanned leather.
Every Giemme Montecristi hat comes in its own handcrafted case, made in balsa wood and lined internally in leather. The heat-insulating and breathable properties of these materials provide excellent protection for the hat’s shape and overall build, ensuring it is properly preserved over time.
Choosing the right hat for you means picking the one that best reflects your unique style. To best enhance your personality, we recommend you pick a hat not simply based on the design of the model, but also by making sure it is proportionate to your figure, physique, features and posture. This will allow you to wear it more naturally, in line with the principle according to which “to wear a hat well, you must forget you have it on your head”.
A hat must reflect the wearer’s style. To best enhance your personality we recommend you pick a hat not only based on its design, but also by making sure that it is proportionate to your figure, physique, features and posture. This will allow you to wear it more naturally, in line with the principle according to which “to wear a hat well, you must forget you have it on your head”.
To find the right size for your hat, simply measure the size of the head. Take a sewing measure tape, starting at the height of your forehead and wrap around to the back of your head, passing just approximately 1 cm above the edge of your ears. This measurement will match the anatomical circumference where the hat will “rest”, and is associated with a size number expressed in centimeters.
Each one of our models can be customized with its own specific weave in grades from 14 ° up to 40 °, defining its quality and therefore value. All our models can be finished with a crown ribbon of your choice, picking from one of the colors available in our sample book.
The internal protective lining band can be in cotton grosgrain or vegetable tanned leather, with its antibacterial, soft and breathable properties.
