Eco Conscious, Vegan, Made in NYC, Handblocked Individually
The first commercially sold winter felt hat line that's entirely animal free... and better! Handblocked one at a time on vintage molds, and insulated with our excess quilted high tech eco-conscious insulation to keep your head toasty warm.
The Cole is that perfect wide brim fall/winter hat that will keep your head cozy and pulled together for the windiest of hair days. Inspired by VAUTE's very own Miss Kaitlin, who makes head adornment an art in itself!
Handblocked one at a time in one of NYC's last remaining hat factories
With Black Grosgrain ribbon trim
Blocked on original vintage molds (my favorites are the 20's-60's)
Made of WonderFelt: 100% vegan, made of 100% recycled plastic bottles, crafted in the USA
Looks like pressed wool felt.
Top inside of hat is insulated with Quilted Upcycled pieces from production and development- often Primaloft ECO down alternative insulation quilted in NYC to wind and snowproof ripstop made of 100% closed loop zero waste recycled fibers.
Spelled for Haute Couture with a V for Vegan, but said like VOTE—VAUTE is an independent fashion house by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart whose raison d’etre is to develop apparel and fabrics that are better than wearing animals ever could be.
In February 2013, VAUTE broke history as the first all vegan label to show at New York Fashion Week, with their first full RTW collection. CNN covered it as “Animal free clothes break runway history.” Soon after, BusinessInsider named VAUTE one of the most innovative businesses in NYC, and US News & World Report said of the opening show, “No one missed the leather- or the fur.”
