Made from waxed cotton, a fabric steeped in history, this is a hat that redefines the word durable.
Hundreds of years ago, sailors noticed that wet sails caught the wind more efficiently that dry ones. This led to rubbing grease and fish oil into the sails of ships, then years later substituting those for paraffin wax to create this newfangled fabric capable of stopping the wind. The sailing industry had inadvertently achieved a similar function to Gore-Tex.
However, where waxed cotton excels further is in its ability to allow vapor out to make it simultaneously breathable. Nicknamed “Tin Cloth” because it is so durable, this waxed cotton hat is flexible, windproof, and waterproof.
Put your Tin Cloth Hat to the test. Doubles as a water bowl for thirsty puppers while out on the trail.
MATERIAL - 100% Cotton coated in paraffin wax

The idea for Anián sprung from the belief that: the clothes we enjoy in the natural world should not be harming it. With this in mind Anian has created timeless, lifetime clothing that you can live your life in, and feel good about. The environmental impact of clothing is something they take seriously. For this reason, Anián begun the transition into using entirely recycled natural fibre textiles from landfills.
From the beginning Anián has been about using natural fibres, manufacturing in Canada, and creating transparency. Most recently they have begun to focus on using predominately recycled natural fibres in an attempt to further chip away at the mountain of consumption the clothing industry is creating.
