"We want people talking about the provenance of clothes,” says Somers, “raising awareness of the fact that we aren’t just purchasing a garment, but a whole chain of value and relationships."
“For more daring fashionistas, however, there was only one option in the hat department: a Panama cap. Resembling a Panama hat, but with a little peaked baseball cap instead of a brim, this is Glorious Goodwood’s newest style courtesy of Fair Trade Hatters Pachacuti”.
It arrived today while I was at work, is an absolutely wonderful fit, and a beautiful hat. It’s stunning; I’m very pleased, and so happy it’s from a responsible supply chain. I thought I should let you know. Thanks very much for getting back to me so promptly, and thank you for the hat.Kind Regards,

“Here I am, standing in a tiny store in the middle of the breathtakingly wild Derbyshire countryside, trying on hats. The only hat I have ever owned is a velvet-covered helmet for riding; there are many days, out on my race horse, when I weigh up the options – possible brain damage vs flat hair – and decide on the former. But that was until I tried on a Panama, the most beautiful hat in the world”.

I just wanted to let you know that my hat arrived on Friday morning and is absolutely perfect. Purchasing a hat without trying it on is very difficult but I wouldn’t hesitate to use your on line store again. Thank you for your help and advise.
I love your hats! They are beautifully made and you give excellent customer service! I wanted a hat for my honeymoon and you went over and above to ensure I received it on time! I can’t recommend your company highly enough!
I received my exchanged hat today and this time it’s a perfect fit! I just want to say thanks for your excellent customer service. Everything has been seamless and the hat is beautiful. And I’m delighted that my purchase helps empower the women that make them. Well done!
Again many thanks
Thanks so much for my reshaped hat which I received today. It now fits perfectly once again and the new ribbon finishes it off nicely.
The service you have shown is far superior to that I have experienced from Lock or Christies and I shall be buying more Pachacuti hats in the future and recommending you to friends.
Thank you very much for my hat, which arrived on Friday morning – it’s great. Thank you very much for your highly swift and efficient and most importantly personal service.Best Wishes
