Papier Fibers

The freshest and lightest material for our Made in Italy hats is fine 'papier' paper, handmade in the traditional way.

Made from a weave of cellulose fibre obtained by recycling valuable paper, the papier is bleached and polished by hand.

We at Hatproof love it in all its variations: in the most elegant white papier models, but also in the stone-washed versions, hand-coloured with abrasive stones, or the special tea-leaf dye.

Each declination has its own style, but all papier-mâché hats share certain characteristics that make them perfect for summer: softness and elasticity, combined with strength and unique grace.

To protect you from the sun and heat without making you sweat, but above all without sacrificing the Made in Italy style!
