GOOD TO KNOW

Whether you’re an intrepid traveler, a stylish lover of the outdoors or someone who just wants a hat that’s near-impossible to destroy, the Maya Neumann Squash Hat is for you.

Maya’s hats are made in Sydney from freshwater hyacinth, one of the world’s most robust straws and favoured by milliners for decades, despite its scarcity.
These hats love water. If you fold, squash or scrunch the hat up, you can simply wet it and mould it back to its original shape, or even give it a twist of your own! 
And they’re so hard-wearing, it’s not unusual for customers to come back to us with a hat that’s more than 10 years old.

No two hats are every the same, as Maya finishes them by hand, mixes the colours herself and sources silks from across the globe. 

Maya has established ethical links with villages that produce the straw, with weavers taking up to a week on each hat. She ensures that the women practicing their traditional craft are given fair pay and working conditions. 
These are unique and hardwearing hats that will become part of your own adventure.

Unique features

  • Folds up for travel.
  • Very durable
  • Will not shrink
  • Re-shapes easily
  • Use water to reshape the hat on your head or with your hands. For more information about this please see our video here

When ordering online please aware that our hats are VERY handmade & may not look exactly like the photo  - if you have particular preferences regarding the hat style, do let us know in the notes section of your order and we will do our best to custom make the hat especially for you. We can send you photos of the hat before we send it to you to ensure you know what you are getting.

When ordering your hat please consider the following.

  • Head size (measure your head from above brow all the way around head)
  • Height.  The following rules generally apply when choosing a hat, shorter people wear a small brim, people of average height wear a medium brim and tall people wear a wide brim. REMEMBER rules are made to be broken too, always choose the hat you feel you would be comfortable wearing.
  • Face Shape. The following rules generally apply when choosing a hat - small or long faces suit small brims, oval, heart and round faces suit medium and wide brims.  These rules are also made to be broken.
Important to know
  • The photos above are general representations of the colors we usually achieve when hand dying our hats.  There will always be a degree of variation in shades from dye batch to dye batch. If you have specific color requirements please let us know and we will try our best achieve a match.
  • The suns UV will over time fade your hats color. Some colors (particularly blue-based tones) will fade faster than others.

 

We use Australia Post for all deliveries.

We aim to process orders within three business days of the sale,  however, I usually manage to get the order out the following day, or if the order is made in the morning, I will endeavour to process the order the same day.

If there is an unforeseen delay processing your order, I will contact you via text or email.

Beautifully made

This hat is so light, so easy to travel with and just so elegant. And the colour is delightful. I was particularly happy to get a message from the milliner verifying my head size so that it could be finished off properly before being shipped.

OUTSTANDING customer service!

Victoria's efforts in ensuring that I received a well-fitting hat were second to none.
I couldn't have received more attention as a customer than if I had walked directly into a hat shop and had a personalised fitting.
Victoria provided two great phone consultations and express service and delivery.
When my hat arrived it was not quite the right size so I sent it back at Victoria's behest and she immediately sent me out another resized hat.
In short, in terms of an quality online shopping experience Victoria has "Nailed It!".
Thanks Victoria! I certainly will be purchasing from you in the future.
