The latest, most sustainable hat from our premium "22" Line is made of a 100% hemp, medium weight canvas (11 oz). This is a high end fabric imported from China and reactive dyed in a medium blue. Other than the canvas, everything else, from the sweatband to the metal buckles were made from scratch here in the United States.
Stylistically, this is not just another Polo hat with a flattened brim. This is designed with our own custom cut which has a deeper fit than any of the 6 panels now being made in the US. We designed these hats very specifcally to fit best on a size 7 5/8, so if you have Large-XXL head you're going to really appreciate the fit on these. If you have a small head, unfortunately, these won't fit you.
The extra weight of the canvas (think Carhartt, but 10X softer & silkier) gives it a more substantial feel with enough rigidity in the crown that it almost looks like its a structured hat. The extra weight plus pure hemp also make this a warmer hat, though hemp's properties still make it breathable enough to wear in the summer or while breaking a sweat. All around a very functional, workwear style piece thats bombproof and will develop more character as it ages.
A teal green underbrim is a variation on the kelly green underbrims used on vintage baseball hats and reduces glare. Proprietary antique metal buckle and leather loop "22" strapback closure with built in tuck pocket.
For those wondering, the majority of hemp fabrics come from China. The mill that made this canvas is from one of the oldest hemp growing regions in the World. Unfortunately, none of the hemp being grown in North America is currently being converted to fiber for textiles. For future runs we hope to advance the process by weaving the same imported yarn in a US organic mill we now work with.
