Andeana Hats


Andeana Hats sources beautiful, handmade alpaca wool hats made sustainably by female Quechua Artisans in the Sacred Valley, Peru. The mission behind the creation of Andeana Hats is to empower women, help support global artisans to continue their vanishing crafts, help women and young girls to receive access to healthcare, an education, and have income opportunities to support themselves and lead their communities out of poverty. People who buy our hats look good, feel good and are DOING good at the same time. We have multiple styles of hats and you can choose different "intention bands" to adorn your hat, each one having a different meaning in the Quechua language. What makes our hats so unique are the subtle imperfections of the Quechua artisan’s work since every hat is hand shaped and naturally dyed. Due to the traditional nature of our craft, no two hats or bands will ever be exactly alike. Because of this, each hat takes about 3 weeks to complete and we produce limited quantities of Andeana Hats every month. Alpaca wool hats $225 and Hand Woven Palm hats $175
