The origin of waxed cotton goes back to Scottish mills in the 1800s. These mills wove flax sails for the British clipper fleet and used linseed oil from flax plants to waterproof both the sails and their clothing. A new process was put in place in 1930, coating cotton cloth with paraffin or bee’s wax. This highly water-resistant cloth quickly became the standard fabric for rainwear and waxed canvas hats. Waxed cotton is created by weaving 2-ply cotton yarn into a strong canvas fabric that is then treated with oil and wax to create a highly water and wind resistant barrier, while maintaining the breathability and comfort known to cotton. Our waxed cotton canvas hats are perfect for every adventure.

Where It’s Made

Hills Hats Image

Our relationship with our friends in New Zealand is extremely collaborative. Their passion for perfection creates a production standard where classics can only be hand crafted with such antiquated machinery and blocks. Machinery found at Hills Hats crosses into the footwear industry and is from an era when goods were built to last. On any given day at their factory you can spot naked gas flames and the sound of steam, harkening back to turn of the century hat making.

New Zealand is a world leader in Health and Safety which continuously advances the workplace standards, which Hills Hats embraces. The staff at this hat maker is all hands-on deck – being a part of discussions around quality, media, and adventure.
