We work with predominantly European factories that share our commitments to quality products, environmental principles, and ethical working conditions. In those circumstances when our items are manufactured outside of Europe, we make our decisions carefully based on expertise.
This is most notably the case with our toquilla straw Panama hats - crafted by artisans in Ecuador - and our signature Frescobol beach bats, hand built by Brazilian marceneiros in Bahia. With these items, we choose to champion traditional techniques and a slower and more sustainable practice of artisanal production for a truly quality product.
All items on our online store are usually in stock. However, even if an item is in stock, please note that another customer could buy an item you want before you complete the order - this includes if the item is in your shopping cart.
If a product in your preferred colour and size is unavailable, you can always sign up for a back-in-stock notification and we will inform you via email once the product becomes available.
We offer size guides on each product page which are product specific with international conversions. If you have any questions regarding your size we are happy to assist, just contact us here.
