Sneak Peak 

There have probably been some not so nice stereotypes about people who wear playing cards attached to their hats. Well, Mains da Vapeur is here to change that!

This brand’s playing card hat design is one of the most creative pieces of fashion we have ever come across. Mains da Vapeur’s incredibly unique hats are so stylish, elegant, and classy that they have even been featured in Vogue!

The process begins when Mexican designer Mariela Alexandra sketches out her ideas and then sends them to Ecuador where local artisans hand weave each hat. The artisans spend over 8 hours hand making each piece before sending them back to the studio where the final touches are placed.

All this to give you exclusive, high quality hat pieces perfect for every wardrobe.

2. Pasionarte

This brand's name speaks for itself, with every piece being a uniquely artistic design hand made for over 15 hours.

Founder Adriana Esquerdecide’s mastery of hat design and craftsmanship has been turning heads, and it is easy to see why! Take a look for yourself at some of our favorite pieces.

Susana Altamirano, Kuerno’s founder and creative director, credits Kuerno’s success to the team’s obsession over every detail. Any hat from Kuerno is not only guaranteed to be handmade from the finest materials, but also an automatic compliment generator whenever you wear it!

Tulum anyone? I too raised my hand for that one! 

If you’re familiar with Tulum, then you already know all about Valment´s vibe. Valment’s hats transport you to the 24/7 classy day parties and tequila cocktails that can only be found on the beaches of Tulum.

Beyond their original designs and high quality products, we love Valment’s pieces because they employ Mexican artisans that use materials native to their country and culture.


Now that you've learned all about these amazing Mexican hat brands, feel free to visit their websites and support latin talent! Remember that every good, long lasting piece takes time to produce and get to your hands! So, let's work together to keep promoting latin designed fashion!
