Hat Care

How To Fold Our Hats

All grass-fibre hats, bags & products by Lorna Murray have been carefully handcrafted, woven on looms, by our artisans in South East Asia. 

Our hats are designed with ease of travel in mind, meaning you can wear and travel with them for years, from rainforests to beaches,
from mountains to towns, from trains to planes, while maintaining their stability.

While they are durable, due to their handcrafted nature, our pieces always need to be handled with care. 

We value conscious consuming and the time-honoured skills and experienced hands of our artisans.

By handling your Lorna Murray pieces with care you will extend the lifetime of your artisanal pieces.

The videos below provide a visual step-by-step guide on the folding technique specific to each hat style,
to ensure your hat can be cared for kindly.

How To Care For Your Artisanal Pieces 

Pulling or tugging too firmly on the weave of the hat may cause ripping.

Always be gentle while handling these pieces.

Do not crush, squeeze or bend the grass fibres. A soft brush can be used to remove dust.

Your fibre hat, bag or product can be sponged lightly with a damp cloth or a soft brush.

Fibre items can be cleaned using a mild soap solution; combine a tablespoon of mild washing powder with cold water.
Pat gently with a cloth, then rinse. Do not use chemical cleaners. If wet, dry away from direct sunlight.

Colours may soften & fibres may become more fragile over time.

Any potential irregularities in the fibre, weave and colour are common and characteristic of the handmade process.
