About Zelda Straw Hat
MOOD & FEEL
Soft and deconstructed, the Zelda expresses the technical characteristics and versatility of natural fibres, which adapt to use and stress. Barbisio’s materials research shows its full force in the hat that merges form with function.
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.
