Eco-Friendly Women’s Hat Designer, Helen Kaminski

Women's Helen Kaminski Raffia Sun Hat - The Aida Summer ChapeauThere’s something pretty special about the women’s summer raffia hats from Helen Kaminski: not only are they gorgeous creations, but they’re eco-friendly too.

Helen Kaminski, a women’s hat designer based in Sydney, Australia, is renowned for their hats, sun visors and bags created from raffia. Using traditional handcraft methods in an exclusive workshop facility on the remote island of Madagascar, the raffia is harvested ecologically so that the raffia palm tree is unharmed.

The environment is not the only beneficiary, the local economy also benefits from the successful hatter. In fact, the original Kaminski workshop now employs hundreds of craftspeople trained in unique raffia treatment and crochet methods.

Look great in your summer sun hats, ladies, and do some good at the same time. It’s all do-able in Helen Kaminski!
