What is a Tarp?
The Amazonas Tarp Hat is made in Brazil of recycled canvas tarpaulins which were used on trucks moving goods around Brazil.
Every Tarp hat is a one off , no two are the same. Every hat has its own unique character. They are made from various colours of materials,some may have patches,seams, repaired holes, or even Portuguese writing. These hats are hand crafted stitched and sewn by Brazilian villagers in the Amazonas region of Brazil.
Because the tarpaulins were designed to protect its contents from the rough elements in Brazil, they make perfect covers to shield your cabeça (that's head in Portuguese) from the hot summer sun.
Every characteristic of an Amazonas Brazilian Wide Brim Tarp Hat tells a story of its prior life lived as a lonely truck tarp and reveals its journeys through the harsh elements in equatorial Brazil and will protect you from the EU weather rain or shine.

Love your patchs !
Each Amazonas tarp hat is different, some have no patches and some have loads,on the top or on the brim, they normally are another shade of material and when they are on your hat they look 100% natural and add to the aged effect we all love from our favourite pieces of clothing.( If you do not want a patch let us know in your order)
Some Amazonas Real Brazilian Tarp hats have Portuguese writing in different places. The Lettering is usually large and makes a bold statement. It can appear on the brim of the hat, as well as on the Top. ( You have a choice when ordering not to have writing)
