HAT TAKING CARE
The best place to store a hat is in a box. If you do not have it, put it on a shelf with the cap stuffed with paper or a hook on the wall. If the hat rim falls, store your paper-filled hat upside down for a while. * NEVER PLACE HIS HAT ON A SHELF IF THE BOWL HAS REPEATED A LITTLE FOLD. IT WILL NOT REPRESENT ORIGINAL SHAPE, IT WILL REMAIN CURVED. * Always wear your hat from below, at the front and back of the rim to maintain its shape.
Always handle your hat with clean hands. Felt hats can gather moss or dust. To clean it, take a velvet brush, an adhesive roller or a clothes brush. Go soft with your hat, the more you handle it carefully, the longer it will accompany you. try to prevent this from happening, but if your hat is stained, use a damp cloth to wipe it, but be careful not to wet it, as this may distort your hat. From time to time, consider putting an aerosol spray on your hat following the instructions and let it dry for 24 hours.
Your felt hat is distorted? Try this: Over a saucepan of boiling water, put it in the steam, give it its original shape and stuff it with paper. Let dry 24 hours. Otherwise contact us to make an appointment. Avoid letting it dry in the sun or near an intense heat source to prevent it from shrinking. For straw hats, you can ONLY work it with steam, if needed. Your hat is wet (too much rain or fallen in the water)? Give it back its original shape and let it dry completely, 24 hours. When it is dry, brush gently. The felt hat always remembers its original shape. So do not be afraid to wander with it in the rain, but be sure to let it dry and then follow the directions for storage and cleaning. For straw hats, you do not have to go in the pouring rain, it is more delicate. in a fine rain, there is no problem. But again, the secret is to ALWAYS let your hat dry before putting it back on.
