The Optimo is a packable style (fold in half along the ridgeline then roll) that is perfect for traveling or sticking away in your beach bag. The crown has a diamond weave pattern. The 5" brim is wide for sun protection, and will develop a wave if kept rolled. To straighten, simply store the hat on a flat surface or use a steam iron to flatten. Made of Sisal straw.
Brookes Boswell founded her eponymous label in 2012 after an apprenticeship with one of New York City's longtime milliners. She and her team hand block and individually construct each hat out of their studio in Portland, OR, creating a product that mixes functionality with a classic aesthetic.
