Looking for a new beanie to keep your noggin warm this winter? Chaos hats have a unique line that caters to those of you that like a lot of flair to those that like a little bit more of a conservative look. We found the Chaos design team to be extremely eclectic as we were able to check out styles that we never knew were possible. Chaos hats come in a variety of fabric options from wool, to fleece, to organic cotton.
Under the entire Chaos Green label is organic cotton, wool and bamboo blends that to continue to diversify their offerings with margins of non-organic hats. Each hat is merchandised with a recycled tag and cork label. The Chaos Green label uses only ‘low impact dyes’ that have less toxic run-off into drains, oceans and ground water. The non-chemical dyes are made exclusively from vegetable and root powders.
In addition to the Green label, Chaos has a sister brand, Moon Shadow, within this category, there is the ‘Peru collection.’ This collection is equally special and unique in its sustainability mission. It is a small-individualized collection of hand-knit higher-end headwear sourced in the Alto Plano mountains of Peru. The ‘Head knitters Guild’ is a small network supplier of 25 indigenous mountain pueblos producing custom headwear for Moon Shadow. The hats range from sophisticated colorful Peruvian styles to playful animal portrayals—ideal for urban fashion boutiques. They are now in their fourth year of development supplying both 100% alpaca hats and acrylic blends hats.
