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.
Adorned with a charcoal vintage French grosgrain ribbon with decorative zigzag stitching and a chocolate brown leather band with hand-dyed and hand-spun wool tassels, the Raymond enchants us with its detail, textures, and design. Made from ethically sourced, 100% virgin wool, Raymond’s long brim offers optimal sun protection and style, while the raw cut edge on all our wool hat brims highlights the wool’s beautiful thickness for a minimalistic, clean finish. The Raymond is incredibly fun to style and pairs beautifully with denims and chambrays.
