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 Seraphina wool hat pays homage to our Andean cultural influences, where the colors worn are as bright as the Equatorial sun, invoking wonder, awe, and positivity. The striking artisanal band is hand-loomed and wrapped with a dark chocolate leather band and beads. Paired with basics, it adds instant intrigue and color to your most unassuming looks. Seraphina’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. Ethically sourced from 100% virgin wool, the Seraphina also makes an excellent addition to your hat wall or home decor.
