The hat, referred to as paper, is either made of plain paper or with a blend of cotton or polyester for better resistance to bending and wrinkling.
Recycled cardboard is treated with natural oils and heat and then processed. The result is a "fabric" that is soft enough to wear, strong enough not to shrink, and green enough to have a bright future in the industry and to be labeled as having a low environmental impact.
The twisted paper strands are braided into a continuous length of braid. Then sewn with a slight overlap, starting from the center. The top of the hat and the brim are then shaped to the desired style.
Maintenance and handling of the paper hat
As you probably know, paper is a fragile material, so it is necessary to handle the hat so that the material is not stressed. Each stronger repeated pressing of the hat can lead to breaking of the stalks. Repeated firm compression of the material with the fingers in the front of the hat during putting on or taking off also leads to damage.
Do not expose the paper hat to high humidity. At high humidity, the hat loses its original shape.
The paper hat cannot be cleaned.
