Who makes the hats?
Each Sundew Sewing Co. hat is handcrafted (by me, Sarah) from start to finish in my home studio in Yarmouth, ME, USA.
What about the brims?
I cut and construct the brims myself rather than using a prefab hard plastic insert. The brim is slightly shorter and more flexible than a typical mass-produced hat, yet firm enough to retain its shape. Bonus, it easily flips up 90's style.
Made to Order
All hats are made to order, unless otherwise noted. Current make time for made to order hats is listed at the top of the page in the announcement bar.
Size + Fit
All hats are available in two sizes. The Adult size will fit most adults and older kids. The hat circumference ranges from about 19.5 inches when fully cinched, to 23 inches comfortably. It measures roughly 13" ear-to-ear, and stands about 4" tall. The brim is 2.75" long, and 7" wide.
The Little Kid size will fit most toddlers and young kids, ages 18 months to 7 years. The hat circumference ranges from about 18.5 inches when fully cinched, to 21.5 inches comfortably. It measures 12” ear-to-ear, and stands about 3.5” tall. The brim is 2.12" long , and 6.5" wide.
We’re fans of embracing rumples and sweat marks as signs of a well-lived life and well-loved garment, however if you’d like to give your hat a spa day, here’s the best way to keep it looking crisp and new:
For Canvas Hats:
1. Hand wash in cold water. Give it a nice long soak and a gentle scrub with a soft brush if needed. (Don’t tell anyone, but a gentle cycle, cold water machine wash is okay too.)
2. Blow up a balloon inside the hat until it’s nice and taut; let it air dry, and remove the balloon. No balloon? Use your head.
3. Iron the brim flat using a cloth between the brim and iron to avoid scorching.
*never put your hat in the dryer*
For Wool Hats: Dry clean or spot clean only.
