Added to cart
The Santa Barbara Hat is named for Santa Barbara Island, part of the Channel Islands National Park just off the coast of my hometown in California. It’s the smallest of the Channel Islands, windswept and a bit isolated. For large parts of the year, if you visit, you’ll want a good hat to keep cozy – so this hat has you covered!
