Story:
Every hat with scarf from piticó® has been handmade and designed to the highest quality. They boast a distinctive heritage. Every item originates from a small mountain village in Mexico where the local inhabitants are keen to showcase their skills as craftsmen, learned throughout many generations, skills which today are world renowned and easily identifiable.

According to company information the goals at piticó® is to provide the highest quality handcrafted winter hat with scarf to every taste and in every design whilst supporting the local community at place of origin. Through this, the company tries to help preserving the cultural identity of the craftsmen whilst securing employment for their villages for years to come.

The production process of the products is 100% natural. All weaving and colouring is done by hand. No electricity is used throughout the whole process, ensuring no carbon footprint and protection of the local environment.

Together with the designers and weavers in Mexico, Pitico also strives to bring customers wishes for the winter hat to life and is keen to implement new design ideas. Pitico claims to guarantee the highest quality craftsmanship, extremely warm hats which are itch-free and insulated with an inner lining, ideal for those cold winters.
