Founded in 2013, NicaHat is a family-run business that produces handwoven hats. Our brand was born with the mission of rescuing the ancestral tradition of Camoapa while promoting the socio-economic development of the artisans within our community.
Our designs highlight the historical and cultural value expressed through different weaving techniques that our artisans have practiced for hundreds of years. We collect pieces of the history of Camoapa, Nicaragua to conceptualise handwoven hats that represent the identity of the Camoapan people, who with their hands have always communicated their way of living and feeling.
Our designs rescue the culture and tradition of their community and adapt them to current market trends. We believe that each hat has a story that deserves to be known beyond Camoapa and Nicaragua.
