Staying close to nature, this hat guide was photographed on the coastline of Big Sur, California. Flourishing 100% natural fiber styles made from palm straw and raffia, these summer hats are the most understated way to stay cool and look chic while keeping the sun off your face and your skin protected.
One of the pioneers of sustainable fashion, designer John Patrick's Communitie hats are comprised of curated collections of hats handmade by artisans around the world. Each collection hails from a different maker, with a strong focus on longevity, sustainability, and ethical manufacturing.
Four styles of Communitie hats are featured on our summer style guide (some are long gone styles we've never been able to hunt down again), but if you tune into Communitie Marfa's website, release rhythm and stockists, you'll be sure to stay on top of coveted new collections as they filter in year after year.
