Born from a mix of vintage sensibilities, practical need & the sort of madness it takes to want to produce anything the right way - Papa Nui makes some damn fine hats. Manufactured in Japan with the highest attention to detail and quality, with personality and a deliberate story behind each piece.

Utilizing black, tea core, veg tan, front quarter horsehide from Japan's Shinki Tannery - the A-26 is a handsome hat rendered in some of the best materials available and with Papa Nui's usual impeccable construction. If you've got a pair of black horsehide boots, now you can match your headwear to them perfectly for head-to-toe excellence. On the inside the breathable 100% cotton black HBT sweatband (milled in Japan) keeps you comfortable.

Being a tea-core leather, this hat will age and wear to a lighter tan in some areas over time, cranking the vintage look up several magnitudes. As a result of its superior materials and construction, this is a highly dynamic garment that will change over years and years of wear. To keep the A-26 hat at its best, a custom printed HBT hat bag is included, so you can safely store your hat when not in use.

Available in Medium (57-58cm) & Large (59-60cm).
