Every single hat is made by hand at our studio in Ireland. Each hat goes through testing before going on sale to ensure it fits the wearer and ensuring ELAINE KEOGH delivers quality hats every time. The testing usually happens six months before the launch of a new style to allow for amendments. Elaine is passionate about using traditional techniques of manipulating fabric by hand to eliminate the use of chemicals during production. These techniques are more time consuming but ensure a quality finish and an outstanding product.
We have a fully traceable supply chain ensuring each hat is made from quality fabrics and were made with safe environmental practices. Elaine is currently in the process of using only certified fabrics. This is a time-consuming process, but we hope that all fabrics will be certified by 2021.
Sustainability – Sustainable, Ethical Fashion
Having studied sustainable textiles Elaine is passionate about sourcing sustainable fabrics. Elaine secured sourcing certified fabrics from Italy in 2019. Over the next year we hope to use all certified fabrics. All hats are made by hand in Ireland to a high standard. We are a slow fashion brand.
