About Marlene Straw Hat
MOOD & FEEL
A revisited legend where decorative elements become formal characteristics. Barbisio’s unmistakable mark shines through the Marlene hat, symbolic of a brand that keeps writing the contemporary history of hat design.
Sourced in Ecuador, the straw used to fashion this Barbisio hat is carefully selected for quality and finesse before being exported. It is processed and woven entirely by hand. Straw is a plant based fibre obtained from palm leaf, and looking after it with a few simple tricks can increase its longevity. Occasionally spray it with a little nebulised water to revive the fibre and prevent breakage. Wipe any stains with a rubber or gently rub with a cloth and soapy water.
