the original recycled-tarp hat
The color shifts, patches, frays, and rare bits of Portuguese writing, all tell the story of our signature hat's prior life. The life of a hard working cargo truck tarp and its adventures through the extreme elements in Brazil. Your hat's handcrafted assembly, combined with the unique life of the recycled truck tarp material, means that no two Real Deal Brazil pieces can ever be alike. The heavy wire brim, pulled from retired Brazilian truck tires, allows you to bend the brim to fit your personal style!
if you don't need to be wearing a helmet, you should be wearing this hat. Hat Size
Bend the brim to suit your whim!

That's Mr. P, our founder. While traveling in Brazil a few years back he spotted one of the locals wearing an interesting tarp hat. He was sure, with a few modifications, that same style of hat would be a huge hit back home. He was right!
It all starts with retired Brazilian truck tarps in an effort to cut down on the wasting of the worldâ€™s resources. The 100% cotton fabric is washed and scrubbed, cut and sewn, and upcycled into this unique collection. When you pick up a hat or bag, you feel the history in each rugged, authentic, eco-friendly piece. The Real Deal Brazil is begging to be taken along on your next adventure, no matter what your passion or pastime!
