We believe in heritage. We love handmade stuff from centuries past. Thankfully, folks in small villages in Nepal and Transylvania still carry on the tradition of their ancestors, growing and making artisanal things by hand. These Freedom Fighter Hemp Hats are made from rustic 100% hemp fabric that is woven * by hand * from hemp grown * by hand *. Yes, it's tough, but it's the most beautiful thing to feel in your hand and wear on your head. Each piece is unique; its awesome texture and character evoke history, tradition, and heritage. We aim to do more handmade heritage pieces like these. Let's hope the know-how stays with humanity for years to come.
FYI The freedom fighter in the name refers to hand-made stuff symbolizing the ultimate fight for freedom against oppression, by continuing the heritage that cannot be undone by boundaries being redrawn and whole cultures being taken over in war and aggression. Express your freedom to live sustainably by, among other things, wearing hemp from head to toe!
The Freedom Fighter Rebel Hemp Hat features a 100% hemp fabric that's rough-woven in the antique style from certified organic hemp that is processed without chemicals or pesticidesof any kind in Romania.
Elastic-free, this is one hat that is simple, functional, practical, elegant, and sustainably produced. And since hemp is renowned for its ability to wick away moisture at a fast rate, making it the natural fiber of choice among nature-loving outdoors people everywhere, you won't ever feel "trapped" in your hat, no matter how high the heat.
Only water and mechanical combing were used to process the hemp fiber. No caustic soda or acid were used at anytime (processes which are regrettably very common in Chinese hemp products).
