The Levante is a wide-winged Drop hat made from hemp straw, a plant that is the subject of intense debate and grows naturally in temperate climates. This is a particularly elastic and resistant material, which means that the hat is crease-free and can be handled without special care and attention. Organic and sustainable, hemp cultivation can be repeated countless times on the same field, reclaiming and softening the very structure of the soil.
The Levante hat has a wide brim and comes in a neutral toast beige colour, with a grosgrain band enriched by a very special fern-green bow. The workmanship of this hat is very special and has a strong artisanal connotation: the hanks of hemp are sewn together to form the classic hat shape, lap after lap.
The resulting raw chapel is processed with the aid of steam and heat, pulling it by hand onto wooden forms so that it takes on the desired shape. Finally, it is dried in natural air.
