Helen Kaminski Hat

SIGNATURE LOGO

All Helen Kaminski products will come with a signature raffia seed logo.

QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP

Raffia, the beautiful, durable, flexible fibre from the raffia palm, is the cornerstone of the brand. In 2012, the label set up a dedicated raffia braid workshop in Sri Lanka to provide sustainable and stable employment for more than 1500 artisans in rural communities. It takes approximately three and a half days to hand plait enough raffia braid to make one hat, and up to five days for a bag. Quality craftsmanship just can’t be rushed.

NEOPRENE

The neoprene band with logo is intended to be worn at the front of the hat for your comfort. The neoprene can be wiped clean using a damp cloth to remove make-up residue.

SIZE ADJUSTABLE

Many styles in the headwear collection feature internal or external size adjustment to achieve the ideal fit for comfort.

ROLLABLE

Designed with the traveller and on-the-go lifestyles in mind. All rollable styles are sold with a drawstring cloth bag to loosely hold the rolled accessory. Some pieces feature functional bands, ties, closures to secure the style when rolled.

UPF 50+

Ultraviolet Protection Factor. This is a rating of how effectively a hat or visor peak can block harmful UV rays. The higher the UPF, the more rays it blocks. This rating is certified through laboratory tests. Weave construction of the fabric, the structure and density of the fabric’s fibres and dye stuff can contribute to a higher UPF rating.
