Right Whale Hat
The name tells its history. It was the ‘right’ whale for killing. There is a lesson from Moby Dick. “From hell’s heart I stab at thee” exclaimed Captain Ahab, as he cast his final harpoon at Moby Dick and subsequently plunged to the bottom of the sea with his whaling ship. If we continue to take down the Earth’s creatures, we will go down with them.
This hat is made from ECONYL regenerated nylon. ECONYL is recyclable and made from waste like old fishing nets.
Ships from Boulder, CO within 3–5 business days.
This hat is part of the Medicine Hat series: healing our relationship to the wild.
As we look to the wild, we are inundated with stories of loss: loss of species, diversity, and regard. But we also see stories of hope, dedication, and resilience. Our hats pay respect to some of those stories and support Mad Agriculture’s work to bring the wild back into consideration on the farm.
