Heather Davenport makes incredibly beautiful, highly functional, one-of-a-kind hats from recycled textiles. Her Lao Hats are a line of winter hats based on medieval Eurasian designs for which Heather has a passion. Not only do her hats keep the wearers warm, they improve the world. Heather donates both hats and money to organizations that benefit the homeless and hungry.

Once you actually see Lao Hats, you want them for yourself and you want to give them to everyone you know. They are works of art. They are eco-friendly. And they support social good.

It doesn’t get better than that!

You can order Lao Hats from the website, but first, you’ll need to measure your head or the head of the hat-wearer-to-be. If you want to gift the hat and can’t devise a clever way to measure the intended recipient’s head without being noticed, e-mail Heather for a gift certificate
