About Jipijapa

Hey there! I’m Simon, founder of Jipijapa and aficionado of hats.
Okay, that’s an understatement: I absolutely adore hats! I have a large collection of Boinas which keeps growing every time I travel to Ecuador. I have received a lot of positive reactions for my colorful headwear. That’s why I founded Jipijapa, to present the unique art of Ecuadorian hat-making to everyone – but especially you.

A hat to do good

On my travels through Ecuador I have seen and learned a lot about the people. For these unforgettable experiences I would like to give something back to them. That’s why, for every Boina sold, I donate CHF 5 to a charitable organization in Ecuador.
