Karina Straw Cowboy Hat - Black

$160.00

Go bold with the Black Karina Straw Cowboy Hat. Inspired by old western films and dusty roads, this hat is funcional and fun with a black vegetable-tanned leather neck tie and strap. Like all Minga hats, the Karina is hand-pressed by artisan partners in Ecuador and made from paja toquilla straw.


Minga partners with a fourth generation family of hat-makers to highlight the traditional hat making process while adapting new, modern designs. 

All hats are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each hat.

☁️ 100% Handwoven Paja Toquilla
☁️ 4" Curved Brim with Creased Crown
☁️ Veg-tanned Leather Strap + Neck Tie
☁️ Custom elastic lining

✨ Meet the Brand - Made By Minga

Minga is a small, woman-run accessories brand based in San Diego, CA. They aim to preserve heirloom practices and low-impact materials to ethically produce bags, hats, wallets and accessories that last.

In 2018, Minga partnered with a small group of women in the highlands of Ecuador to launch their first bag collection. Months were spent living with this community to understand their story and craft. This season birthed their vision to create beautiful products through sustainable and traditional means. Over the years, Minga has expanded to work with a women-ran family hat studio, as well as a small team of leathersmiths. Today, Minga is always seeking to grow authentically alongside our partners and customers, while staying true to the artisanal processes and roots we have grown from.
