NINAKURU hand-shaped wool hats are lovingly crafted in collaboration with our South American partner millinery, family owned and operated for over 80 years. Our wool hats are individually shaped by hand using an artisanal “blocking” process, which uses steam and water to mold the wool over handmade wooden hat blocks, or molds. We spend several weeks in South America carefully selecting our wool and color palettes for each season, and work side-by-side with our team of artisans pre-shaping our hats and preparing them for their journey to our studio in Ojai, California. Once the hats arrive in Ojai, we complete the shaping, and design and adorn them to be distributed to our boutique partners and customers around the world.
The Nokota is everything we love in a wool hat. The striking contrast of natural turquoise against rich dark brown hat body, along with leather lace straps and an adjustable loop, make this a wonderful accessory to wear when horseback riding, boating or in breezy conditions. Straps are adorned with leather tassels, which drape beautifully across the front. Equal parts practical and beautiful, and made from ethically sourced, 100% virgin wool, Nokota’s long brim offers optimal sun protection and style, and the raw cut edge on all our wool hat brims highlights the wool’s beautiful thickness for a minimalistic, clean finish.
