All Allpa goods are made with fine, high quality Ecuadorian toquilla straw, thus, items are completely natural with no synthetic top finishes, except for the outer and inner bands on the hats.
Do not let your hat or toquilla straw accessories come in contact with water.
Excessive moisture will cause your hat to lose its shape.
Excessive sun or heat can also be damaging to your toquilla straw accessories.
We do not recommend rolling or folding your hat, as this can produce creases, cracks and shape-loss.
Always pick your hat up and handle it by the brim or by cupping the crown with an open palm.
Remove dirt by lightly dusting them with a dry, soft cloth.
You can recover your hat’s original brim shape by ironing it under a slightly damp cloth, with the iron at a low setting.
When resting your hat on a flat surface, rest it on its crown (upside down), rather than its brim. When hanging it up, make sure the peg rests on the sweatband, not the straw.
Store your toquilla straw accessories in a dry, cool place, away from direct sunlight.
