Made and shipped to you by our FairlyStyled partners.

Our classic Rancher hat design, handmade from sheep's wool, is the perfect touch of sophistication. Wide-brimmed with a teardrop crown, and finished with a vegetable-tanned leather tie. Crafted with natural fibers makes for a versatile, all-season hat.

We partner with a fourth generation family of hat-makers to highlight the traditional hat making process while adapting new, modern designs. 

Our hats are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each hat and band.

Fair to people. Fair to planet. FairlyStyled.

Sizing

If you are in between sizes or unsure of your hat size, we recommend sizing up and using a hat filler or hat sizing tape for the perfect fit. To find your personal hat size, you will have to measure the circumference of your head. You'll need either a flexible tape-measure or a long piece of fabric (i.e. scarf or string) and a ruler. Simply wrap it around your head about 2-3" above your eyebrows) to find the circumference.

Impact

We partner with a fourth generation family of hat-makers to highlight the traditional hat making process while adapting new, modern designs. All of our hats are made by hand in their at-home studio in a small town in Ecuador.

In 2018, we launched our first bag collection after partnering with a small group of talented women in the highlands of Ecuador. We spent months living with this community to understand their story and craft. This season birthed our vision to create beautiful products through sustainable and traditional means.

What started with a few simple bags grew into a collection of thoughtful heirloom accessories. Over the years, we have expanded to work with a women-ran family hat studio, as well as a small team of leathersmiths. Today, Minga is always seeking to grow authentically alongside our partners and customers, while staying true to the artisanal processes and roots we have grown from.

Our hats are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each hat and band.

Care

Caring for your hat

If your hat needs a tune-up, we recommend using a soft bristle brush or lint roller to lightly clean it. If you have any stains on your hat, you can use an all-natural soap and white damp cloth to remove the stain. On our wool hats, stains may come out by using sandpaper. If your hat gets wet, allow it to dry on a flat surface so it maintains its shape. 

Re-flatten or shaping the brim of your hat

If your hat is losing it’s shape or stiffness, you can easily reshape it at home. You will need an iron, ironing board, and damp sheet or cloth. Place the hat on an ironing board with a damp sheet covering brim where the iron will make contact. This will avoid the iron burning or scaring your hat. With steam, gradually iron the brim of your hat. Once done ironing, let your hat cool on a hard and flat surface for at least 10 mins.
