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.
Inspired by the cap worn by Donald Sutherland as Hawkeye in the 1970 MASH film, Papa Nui's Hawkeye cap is sewn up from a soft and sturdy duck hunter camo cotton HBT. With a transformable body, it's effectively two hats in one, with a flannel lined interior ear flap, the bucket cap orientation can be flipped into a hunting cap at a moment's notice.
Sewn up from 100% cotton, it features a water repellant finish and a structured brim. Custom labels and an embroidered Hino Maru patch can be found inside, the marks of a genuine Papa Nui Hat.
Available in Medium (57-58cm) & Large (59-60cm). Wash cold, towel dry for no shrinkage. Wash hot, dry hot for shrinkage. Maximum stretch/shrinkage is approximately 1-1.5cm.
