If we can make hats in styles that people want to wear, and make them from responsible materials using responsible business practices all at a fair price, then perhaps people needing hats will choose us over companies purely driven by profit. A better scenario would be other companies seeing our success and adopting similar practices.
Our slogan “Responsibly Grown, Beautifully Made” means a lot more than just making a high quality hat from organic cotton; it begs us to keep asking the hard questions about every strata of our business model and to seek out solutions to lighten our social and environmental footprint, even if there aren’t yet precedent solutions in the quirky world of hat making.
WE REALIZE THAT EVERY PRODUCT MADE CAUSES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT TO SOME DEGREE. IT IS OUR GOAL TO LIMIT THAT IMPACT.
It takes effort to understand exactly what we are doing on a deeper level. That is, committing time and resources to creating the most transparent picture of how Conner Hats impacts the world via material sourcing, design, production, and shipping, for example.
Changing whatever we can to reduce our footprint is never ending. We are passionate about this quest and we owe it to our children to help make the world a better place.

“Parafina is a transformative lifestyle brand with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear in eco-friendly materials at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. We live by our tagline, “See Beyond Trash” This experimental ethos is what makes us who we are. Through constant experimentation with materials, design, and manufacturing techniques, Parafina Co. aims to reinvent the eyewear market and reintroduce consumers to products that are thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted.
If you are not familiar with Parafina, their business philosophy is rooted in the concept of Giving. It all started in 2014 when founders Alfonso de Luján and Samuel Soria befriended children in a village in Paraguay and found they had a very difficult access to education. Wanting to help, they created Parafina, a company that would finance education programs with every pair of eyewear sold along with other social activities.”
SOCIAL – Parafina donates 5% of every purchase to our social project #LlévaleAlCole.
ECO-FRIENDLY – All shades are made with recycled materials.
100% RADICAL – Eyewear as never seen before.
In 2018 Parafina recycled 201,106 aluminum cans, reused 434,672 PET bottles, and saved 1200 tons of CO2!
