About Wim Straw Cap


A true Barbisio hybrid, the Wim brings together distant references in an inventive solution that expands the vocabulary of hat design. The result is an understated contemporary icon that sheds all frills, becoming pure, essentially sculptural.



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.
