Material: Cotton, raffia
Brand: Helen Kaminski
Accessories designer Helen Kaminski launched her eponymous collection with a single hat handmade from raffia, a type of palm found on Madagascar. Years later, sustainably harvested raffia remains a primary source material for Kaminski’s now internationally recognized brand, showing up in everything from fanciful wide-brim sun hats and adjustable visors to handbags like the Keralt — a braided, beach-ready raffia tote bag embellished with tri-tone, carved wood beads. For those days when sunshine and beaches are nowhere in sight, Kaminski offers a diverse selection of chic leather handbags and felt hats like the Murano, a fur-felt cloche that rolls up for convenient storage, and the Duke: a chic seamed bucket fedora rounded off with an Italian suede band.
