This vented hat is a little twist on the original Tarp Hat, it features all the style and ruggedness of the original tarp hat but with vented sides to help you keep a cool head ! The venting is made from recycled burlap sacking/jute which is hand sewn to produce a Tarp Hat that is truly wonderful!
The main body of the hat is made from recycled truck tarpaulins from open cargo trucks that run from Amazonas in the North west to the south of Brazil along thousands of miles of unmade red dust laden tracks with rain, sun & dust ageing the material in a way that no factory could ever replicate. After which the material is washed and prepared ready to be made into "probably" the best original Brazilian tarp hats around.
So all of the hats have seen more weather than most of us might see in a lifetime and do not need any looking after and are ready for their next job of keeping the elements off of you whilst looking rather cool at the same time.
All of the hats are individual with no two being the same, some will have repair patches on, others will have stamps or writing on, this all adds to their charm and they are as individual as all of usâ¦no mass production here, just individual style!
