Yoooo have you seen our new hats yet?! --> Hats Collection.

I've been a fan hats my whole life - probably since starting baseball at age 6 🧢

We've been wanting to do hats for a long time with Tree Tribe but just could't find a good combo of quality + eco materials.

At Tree Tribe, we always try to create more eco friendly alternatives than what's on the market.

After a lot of prototyping and sampling, we're proud to introduce Tree Tribe hats - made from Flax (a cool super eco material) and blended with cotton for a cool looking texture + nice comfort.

Highlights

  • Made with Flax and Cotton blend
  • Adjustable - 1 size fits most
  • Raised embroidered design
  • Every purchase helps us plant more trees

About Flax

Most hats we've found are made with either virgin polyester, acrylic, or 100% cotton. We strive to use more eco friendly materials, so we chose a flax / cotton blend for our hats.

Similar to hemp and bamboo, flax is a tough plant that does well without fertilizers or pesticides, and requires less water than cotton.

You've heard of flax seeds right? The same plant produces nutritious seeds + eco friendly fabric. Nice!

We actually sampled some bamboo hats as well (we love bamboo!), but for hats it just didn't work very well.

THE FABRIC

Flax is strong, and if you zoom in on the product images you can see the cool texture it adds to the hat.

The result of our prototyping and testing is top quality hats that feel, fit, and look great.

My personal favs are the Nature Vibe and the NICE designs.

The NICE hat is fun to wear, it gets some laughs and an occasional "Niiiiiiiiiiiice" 😃

Here's the full lineup. If you have any ideas or style requests give us a shout.

Ever wonder how an organic tomato could taste so delicious? How the produce at your local farmers market packs so much flavor into every bite? Or how the neighbor down the street always has the most beautiful, vibrant flower garden?

The secret’s in the soil. Actually— it’s what goes into the soil. Compost is a rich, organic matter created by plant material to feed other plants. Also known as black gold, it’s an easy way to boost the health of your garden or indoor plants.
