Each hat is crafted by hand by the artisan women of Kullvi WHIMS in Naggar, Himachal Pradesh. We've incorporated our softest wool, from a local breed of sheep raised just a few hours from where our artisans live. You will find beautiful variation in yarn thickness and colour in these handmade pieces, making each pair unique.
This hat was inspired by a pair of legwarmers with the same cable knit motif, designed by Neema, that had arrived in the original sample box sent to us by our artisan partners in March 2019.
We decided to make a hat. Kusum in Naggar, and Sarah in Germany, individually created a few different hat samples using the same cable motif. When we met in August 2019, we combined the best of our ideas into the final design, which resulted in a sweet twisted cable detail on the brim and an easy slouchy style.
This year we've added a few new colours, including this textural marled look, and due to customer demand, we've added a new larger size!

All of our garments come in a protective muslin bag, stitched by the women of Kruti, in the village of Mulshi, Maharashtra. Kruti, a stitching unit run by Anubhuti Social Foundation, provides employment opportunities to women in rural communities, by implementing training programs in tailoring.
