How do I care for my straw hat?

Caring for your Noosa Sundays straw hat is essential to maintain its quality and prolong its lifespan. Here's how to ensure your hat remains in its best condition:

1. Handle with Care: Always handle your straw hat gently to avoid bending or mis-shaping its structure.

2. Avoid Moisture: Straw hats are susceptible to damage from moisture. Keep your hat dry and avoid wearing it in rainy or humid conditions.

3. Store Properly: When not in use, store your hat in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use a hat box or a breathable bag to protect it from dust and potential damage. Never store your hat unless it's completely dry.

4. Clean Regularly: Use a soft-bristled brush or a lint roller to remove dust and dirt from your hat. Avoid using harsh chemicals or cleaners, as they may damage the straw fibres.

5. Spot Clean: For small stains or spots, use a damp cloth or sponge with mild soap to gently clean the affected area. Allow your hat to air dry completely before wearing or storing.

6. Shape Maintenance: If your hat loses its shape, gently reshape it by hand. You can also steam the hat lightly to help reshape it, but be cautious not to apply too much heat, as it can damage the straw fibres. You can also contact us for a quote to rejuvenate your hat.

7. Inner Hatband Care: The inner hatband should be regularly air dried naturally away from direct sunlight and heat.

8. Avoid Heat: Avoid placing in areas with direct heat, such as a closed car, as excessive heat can cause the straw to become brittle and split the straw fibres.

Follow these care instructions, to ensure your Noosa Sundays straw hat retains its style and durability for many years.
