A beige woven hat, made by the Wayuu tribe in Colombia. Paired with a handwoven, thick turquoise pom pom band for a pop of playful colour, the neutral tones of this hat make it perfect for styling with your everyday attire. Treasure for a lifetime.

Kate is a classic beauty; she's that girl who always turns up on time looking impossibly perfect and immaculate in every way. You want to hate her, but can't help adoring her.
Chic and timeless but with the authority of 'I chose this because it's practical but incredibly special too', you know just who she is and what she brings. We want all every single one of her outfits...
Each hat is beautifully presented in a show-stopper of a box and comes with it's own block print dust bag for safe keeping.


Still undecided about colour? Don't be: all of our hats are fully customisable. Shop our mix and match pom pom bands so you can colour co-ordinate whenever you like. Ta da!

The Handmade Wayuu Hat is meticulously handwoven by talented Wayuu artisans, who have honed their craft for generations. The intricate patterns and vibrant colors reflect the tribe's rich cultural identity, ensuring that every hat is a work of art.

Tailored Fit: With a 21'' head opening, this hat provides a comfortable and adjustable fit for a wide range of head sizes. It sits securely yet comfortably, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor adventures without worrying about discomfort or slippage.

Shield yourself from the sun's rays with the wide brim of the Wayuu hat. It offers ample coverage, protecting your face, neck, and shoulders from harmful UV rays.

By choosing the Handmade Wayuu Hat, you support fair trade practices and empower the Wayuu artisans. Your purchase contributes to the preservation of their cultural heritage, helping sustain their communities and ensuring the continuation of their craft.

The Wayuu people are native South Americans who live in an area between Venezuela and Colombia. They live in a harsh, arid area, and the families are divided into clans.

The Wayuu people are skilled weavers and knitters and their handcrafts include bags, hats, and hammocks.

Living in small, isolated communities, in Wayuu culture, the woman is the pillar of the family and with her weavings is its main supporter and that of the community.

🌴Crafted from premium Iraca palm fibers, this hat offers exceptional durability, flexibility, and breathability.

🧊The natural fibers allow air to circulate, keeping your head cool and comfortable even during the hottest summer days.

👒Simply wipe clean and, to reshape or resize, a spritz of water will help to hold the shape. Pull the brim down for protection from the sun or experiment with fun angles for a more quirky, jaunty vibe!

We hope that our products really do last you a lifetime, but it's also important to remember that they are made entirely by hand and therefore require the care and respect they fully deserve, if they are to stand the test of time.

Think of them as investment pieces and treat them with real love and care, after all: they are lovingly made artisan items from India. There's no fast, disposable fashion here.

Some Helpful Reminders

Block Print Bedding:

- only ever wash gently by hand, or on a very cool, short cycle with like colours in the machine. Cotton voile is a thin fabric that needs to be washed delicately.

- never tumble dry and avoid using harsh chemicals.

- a good steam can help with creases!

- neon block print fabrics are at risk of running if left damp for too long, so do take care.

Quilted Bags & Accessories:

- please don't overload our handmade bags & wash bags, if you wish to preserve the longevity of the straps and zips.

- spot cleaning is fine and tote bags can benefit from a short, cool wash if needed with like colours. Please line dry and be aware that, whilst our inks are colour fast, neon dyes may transfer when wet, so dry with care.

- take care not to soak our block printed bags and accessories, as the neon colours can transfer if not dried quickly.

Enamelware:

- chips and bumps are normal; please don't expect machine made perfection!

- wash in cool, soapy water only and do not put in the dishwasher or expose to extreme heat.

Mother of Pearl & Bone Inlay:

- these handmade boxes and trays are sturdy but fragile; they will need to be handled with real care.

Just remember: a little care and love goes a long way with all of our beautiful handmade products.

Ethical | Bespoke | Handmade

All of our bespoke bedding and quilted accessories are designed in Rutland, but made entirely by hand in India; our team of artisans in Jaipur hand-block the fabric, stitch each item slowly by hand and finish our cosy quilts with the beautiful and delicate ‘running stitch’ that gives your block print bedding that gorgeous circular surface pattern. We only make things in small batches so, when they’ve sold out, it may take us some time to get more in stock; in fact, each batch is completely unique, and our product designs are constantly evolving.

As with all handmade products and block print bedding, please expect some variation in stitching and occasional splashes of ink on the hand-blocked fabric from the intricate printing process are perfectly normal. In fact, these are wonderful reminders that your items are slowly and ethically made by people in artisan communities, rather than simply run off a conveyor belt in a factory; no two items can ever be the same, which is what makes them so unique and one-of-a-kind.

There is beauty in the imperfection; it is what gives them all such personality and charm. Every single piece tells a story, and we hope you will be inspired by the magical prints and their thought-provoking heritage.

Please read our full ‘How it’s Made’ section for more information on block printing and our creative team in Jaipur, India.

🌍 With sustainability being so important to us all these days (and rightly so), Bombaby is proud to bring you these ethically sourced and slowly made block print textiles; every pattern has been painstakingly block printed and our quilted accessories are sewn entirely by hand using traditional methods. No fast fashion here!

🧵 Our team of skilled artisans in Jaipur have lovingly created these bespoke accessories for you in small, exclusive batches; take pleasure in the fact that they haven't been created in their thousands on a factory conveyor belt! 

🎨 Every single product is entirely unique with it's quirks and variations in details; it's precisely what makes them so special! We don't launch new collections each season; we use up the materials we already have and print all of our fabric to order to minimise waste.

💥 Leave a lasting legacy. 1 quilt = 1 tree planted. Read more about the project on our sustainability page.
