Punka Hat

“Yesterday I was just another Hawaiian shirt and today I am a Punka Hat. Nahenahe!”
What's a Punka Hat?
It's named after the centuries old Punka (Punkah) fan widely used in India but also referring to the large palm leaf fans used for cooling in the Pacific Islands. The Punka Hat is well ventilated to keep the wearer cool. These shirt hats are also proving their worth for people and athletes with long hair or dreadlocks.
The hat was once a perfectly good shirt that outlived its usefulness. By making Punka Hats out of Hawaiian shirts, and a few other types of shirts, we end up with button down shade for your shoulders and a small pocket for an iPod or sunglasses or whatever.
Most of our Punka Hats are made from retired Hawaiian shirts and some from new overstocked shirts. The shirts are washed and inspected before being selected for their new life. If you have a shirt that you love but just don’t wear anymore, we can turn it into a Punka Hat for you. The bill is formed with neoprene to be soft and floppy as well as water proof.
The Punka Hat can be worn in several ways, filleted over your shoulders, pulled back and tucked into the strap for a skull cap look, or laid back like the Leg Hat. Each one is different and may never be seen again. We try to keep as many as possible on the website to choose from.
You may also call these hats made from Hawaiian shirts, or shirt hat, or Hawaiian shirts hat, or hats made out of shirts, but whatever you call them they are great hats.
