About Ray Straw Hat


Structured, light hat and with an unmistakable character, the Ray expresses the full potential of Barbisio’s reinterpretation of headwear icons through its signature moulding technique, where unlined constructions elevate the architectural essence of the hat.



Sourced in Ecuador, the straw used to fashion this Barbisio hat is carefully selected for quality and finesse before being exported. It is processed and woven entirely by hand. Straw is a plant based fibre obtained from palm leaf, and looking after it with a few simple tricks can increase its longevity. Occasionally spray it with a little nebulised water to revive the fibre and prevent breakage. Wipe any stains with a rubber or gently rub with a cloth and soapy water.
