Carpe Diem Outback Hat from Paz Apparel.
The Carpe Diem is really the perfect hat for wearing while working in your garden, or anytime you are going to be outdoors under the sun. The brass snaps on the side let you transform the wide brim for a more tailored and authentic 'Outback' look.
Rather than discarding the durable material it is purchased and crafted into some of the finest and funkiest hats and bags you’ll ever find.
Each piece is truly unique. No canvas is alike and many pieces will come with original patchwork that the drivers sew on to protect their payload.
It’s hard to think of any fashion items that are truly individual unique pieces, but with these both the design and the fabric are different from piece to piece….each is a one of a kind piece.
This is the one that started it all. We were vacationing in Brazil when a friend of mine pulled this hat out of their bag. This simple act set me on a journey to find the small family run factory that produced it. Made of recycled canvas and a vegan leather strap this hat is so eco-conscious and comfortable you'll fall in love with it just as I did. Not only will you look fantastic under the wide brim but you'll also be protected from intense sun.
Every single item produced by Paz Apparel is completely hand-cut canvas and custom designed to our specifications. We've even had a few of our friends design items for us!
And the cruelty-free, vegan leather is weather worn, sun bleached and gorgeously distressed so color and texture will vary from piece to piece making yours truly one-of-a-kind.
The dye used in the 'Cacao' Chocolate color is designated as an eco dye by the government of Brazil and has been declared safe for the environment.
