Our hats are hand-made in various places around the world by different skilled artisan groups. We regularly visit our factories to ensure sustainable and ethical practices are being upheld and trace all elements of the supply chain to ensure LOC hats are being responsibly made and materials responsibly sourced. All factories have BSCI certification. The straw and palm we use for our straw hats is sustainably grown and replenished and re-grown for future use. Our wool is 100% Australian wool. In buying LOC hats you are supporting local resources and talent and in turn, supporting families and their way of life.
Our hats are designed and finished in Australia and are manufactured in different places around the globe, including Mexico, USA, China & the Dominican Republic.
Our HQ in Burleigh Heads is run on solar power. All orders are shipped out in 100% recycled cardboard boxes. Our swing tags are made from 100% recycled paper. We endeavour to make an effort to walk a little lighter on this planet.
