sisam : chalk band scallywag hat


The scallywag hat is a playful take on a classic shape. Woven from natural plant fibres, it's breathable and flexible without sacrificing strength. The single, coloured  detail stripe is incorporated into the weave for a ribbon-like effect and finished with an adorable brass button fixture. Handmade in Nepal by one of Sisam's fair trade partners, all of the materials were ethically sourced and sustainably produced– which means you can feel good while you look good.

Beginning life as a small fair trade shop in the suburbs of Kyoto, Sisam Kobo aims to meaningfully connect with people from weak socio-economic positions. Since their founding, they have been developing high-quality, original products, engaging in fair trade as a the right thing to do rather than as charity. Sisam believe it's not only the product that must be good, but the ethics behind them.
