Caring for your Cuatro Hat
CARING FOR YOUR CUATRO HAT
To prevent wear and tear and to insure that your cuatro x confettees hat stays beautifully shaped, keep your handmade hat in a hat box or on a shelf. Stuff the crown of your hat with tissue paper so the brim is supported and the integrity of the shape is maintained. You may also hang your hat on a hook if preferred.
When putting on or removing your hat for wear, take it off and on by the brim.
Toquilla straw is a natural fiber; all dyes used to color the hats will vary but are affected by sunlight and moisture. Do not let your hat come in contact with water or intense heat. Storing your hat in a cool, dry place will make your hat happy!
Straw hats should not be cleaned with any product or solution. You can periodically turn your hat to prevent dust build up or gently use a lint roller to remove any debris.
