We want to talk about our cap journey. We say journey, because it took some heavy consideration to offer our caps this season.
The classic dad hat is a constant companion in our beach bag, and a definite must on our weekly National Park walks. They are easy to pack, cute to wear, and a general summer staple. So it was natural for us to want to offer this as part of our Summer range.
However, we quickly discovered that an Australian made cap is not available. As in, they are not produced onshore. Anymore. Anywhere. Unfortunately the humble Australian cap has succumbed to the globalisation and readinesss of offshore manufacturing. We are so passionate for conscious consuming, and supporting Australian made, onshore production. So it took time and deliberation to produce our caps this summer.
Our caps are sourced from a local supplier, and are embroidered by a local business. But the caps are made in China. We have produced these caps in limited numbers to reduce any unnecessary waste. And have procured them as locally as possible. But we will always be transparent – and give you the choice. We hope you love the quality and feel of our caps and wear with pride this summer.
Much love, Granite Rays
