Wholesale Dress Hats

When retailers sell wholesale designer hats to their customers, it is helpful to teach them about how to care for them so they remain functional and endure hundreds of uses. Many women are accessorizing with dressy straw styles during the spring and summer months, so it's important to remind them of the following maintenance techniques:

  • Keep designer hats in a designated hatbox, on a cushioned hook or on a flat closet shelf. This will help them retain their shape over time. To keep the crowns from becoming flattened, fill them with tissue paper when they are stored.
  • Do not allow straw hats to sit in a car window or leave them in the sun for long periods of time. Sun can dry out raffia, grass and other fibers, causing them to become brittle or break.
  • Keep dressy straw designs out of the rain, and do not wear them over wet hair. The fiber absorbs moisture from rain or damp hair, compromising the shape of the hat and the integrity of the weave. *Use a warm iron--set on low--to flatten the brim of a straw hat that has been in storage. Move the iron quickly along the fiber, gently smoothing it with your fingers as it becomes warm.
  • Dampen a cloth with warm water and mild detergent to remove spots from designer straw hats. Don't oversaturate them, however.
