«Onkai, meaning deep gratitude towards the ocean and freedom. Our inspiration comes from the Japanese aesthetics of wabi-sabi. That is why you will find kimono patterns and antique boro fabrics lovingly worked into our hats. Each hat is distinctive and crafted with the finest materials around. Our fabrics are made in Japan, the felt in the US and the leather comes from a family-run vegetable tannery in Florence, Italy. Attention to detail and the love of the unique are part of our philosophy.»
«Each piece is a work of art, handmade in Switzerland.
It's the slow way, the passionate way. But for us the right way.»
