Felt, Leather, or Straw?
Different situations and different weather conditions call for different hat materials. Cowboy hats made of felt, be it wool or fur felt, are widely recognized as the most resistant. Felt hats have a greater resistance to water exposure and to deformation, which allows them to be kept and maintained for many years. Henri Henri offers a range of horse-bristled hat brushes to help you maintain your felt hats.
Straw cowboy hats are lighter and vented, which makes them especially pleasant to wear in hot and humid weather. They are however more fragile. While some synthetic straw hats may be crushed or rolled, most natural straw hats must be handled with care and kept away from water exposure to avoid breaking or crushing the straw. Although they can be used as a sun and summer cowboy hat, they are not necessarily recommended as a beach hat.
Leather hats are excellent in-betweeners. They are near or as resistant as felt hats and often feature ventilation systems. They can therefore be chosen as a travel hat, but it is important to regularly treat leather hats with leather protectors or leather conditioners to keep your cowboy hat soft and healthy. Henri Henri offers a range of leather hats care products to discover.
