Monte - Natural/Natural Chin Strap
The Monte is our newest shape, featuring a flattened brim, chin strap and made with a light mocora straw.
•Handmade in Ecuador from 100% Mocora straw
•Cord made with organic cotton
•Cord adjuster made from hand carved tagua bead
•Brim size: 6"
•Size-adjustable inner band
• Large is the average hat size for women.
• If in between sizes, we recommend going up in size as most of our hats have adjustable inner bands to tighten the inner crown.
• The inner adjustable band is hidden within the band with our tag. Behind the strip you'll feel a velcro tab. Pull this tab and adjust accordingly to tighten the hat.
Use the brim when removing or putting on your hat and avoid crushing the hat. Inside, there is an adjustable band sewn into the inner circumference of the hat, you can make the size up to 1 size smaller using this band.
CLEANING & RESHAPING
Remove stains or spots with a damp cloth and soap dabbing the stain spot with the cloth. Repeat this process with a damp cloth without soap and let air dry. If the hat or bag has been left on a humid space this may distort the straw. Lay a damp cloth or t-shirt on the part that needs to be reshaped and pass a warm iron over it to reshape it. This method can be used to manipulate the shape of the brim if you prefer it to flip up or down, as well.
We recommend you store your hat or bag in a cool, dry place on a shelf away from direct sunlight, otherwise this might discolor or distort the shape. AVOID CONTACT WITH WATER OR MOISTURE and away from excess heat as straw may become brittle and crack. Avoid leaving inside your car.
