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 Quint is a nod to the feminine-masculine dichotomy. The warm, cappuccino-toned wool base is contrasted with a vintage ribbon and linen band inspired by fine suits and seersucker. An intentionally asymmetrical finish gives this elegant piece a dash of whimsy.
