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 a unique big game fishing cap from the 1940s, Papa Nui's Key West cap features the most interesting brim shape we've ever seen on a hat in our shop. Made from a lightweight cotton HBT (herringbone twill), with a kelly green visor lining, it's the latest in Papa Nui's already stellar lineup of fishing caps with nonstandard brims, and maybe the best one yet.
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.
