Storage and care

Ruslan Baginskiy hats made of natural materials that sometimes require special treatment to extend the life of your hat.

Store your hat in a hat box or dust bag.  Place it on a clean flat surface or hung on a wide, flat hook.

Keep your hat away from direct sunlight, water and humidity. If your hat has metallic embellishments, we recommend you avoid salty air, chlorine, cosmetics, and strong chemicals to prevent tarnish as much as possible.

If the hat gets wet, let it dry naturally without heat, with crown and brim in the proper shape. 

Dust can be removed by brushing with a soft brush or lint roller. For more severe stains, we suggest taking your hat to a local hat repair shop or use the dry cleaning service with hat cleaning option. 

All straw hats are made of natural materials that can slightly change its color due to long term sun exposure. 

Caps have solid peak, that can change shape or break due to inappropriate storage or transporting. 

Leather pieces require gentle treatment. The west or dust can be removed with a dry napkin. For cleaning headpieces and leather accessories don’t use soap, oils, abrasive cleaners, furniture polish, varnish or ammonia. 

To safe the hat’s shape while transporting, you can use a hat box.

With a little care, a hat should last years.
