The Story Behind El Sol:EL SOL is a workshop project between two old friends, Wilee Roberts of Hampui Hatsand Ben Goorin of Goorin Bros., passionate about hats. They come together one Sunday each month in Wilee's workshop in Berkely, California to make something extraordinary for the moment. Each hat is crafted by hand from articles responsibly and sustainably sourced from around the world. Learn more about El Sol here.
The Details: The hat body is made and blocked in Bolivia. The trims and bands are added in Berkley, CA by Willee. Additionally, the hatband is woven by hand and sourced by Willee on a trip to PeruWhy We Love It: This style was inspired by a bed of roses. The woven hat band with the pink and natural elements, paired with the bright contrasting yellow edge binding against navy dyed wool, makes this style romantic and sweet to look at.
