Leather Hat Care

If you own an Australian leather bush hat, it's important to take proper care of it to ensure that it lasts for many years to come. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to take care of your hat:

  1. Brush the hat regularly: To keep your leather hat looking its best, use a soft-bristled brush to remove any dirt, dust or debris that has accumulated on the surface. You can use a clean, dry cloth to wipe away any remaining dirt or dust.

  2. Protect the hat from excessive moisture: Leather hats are made from high-quality leather, which can be damaged by exposure to moisture. To protect your hat, avoid wearing it in the rain or in damp environments. If your hat does get wet, allow it to air dry naturally and avoid using direct heat sources like hair dryers or heaters.

  3. Store the hat properly: When you're not wearing your leather bush hat, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. You can use a hat rack or a hat box to help protect it from dust and damage.

  4. Condition the leather: Leather can dry out over time, so it's important to condition your hat regularly to keep it looking its best. Use a high-quality leather conditioner and apply it to the surface of the hat using a clean cloth. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for best results.

  5. Shape the brim: If your hat has a brim that has become misshapen, you can use steam to help reshape it. Hold the hat over a steaming kettle or pot for a few seconds, and then use your hands to reshape the brim. Be careful not to burn yourself on the hot steam.

By following these simple steps, you can help ensure that your Australian leather bush hat stays looking great for years to come.
