As much a work of 3D art as an accessory, O’Lover hats seek to create a visual impact in addition to supporting socially and environmentally enlightened practices. Occasionally, Crawford will design lines that are influenced by beach cleanups she attends as well as reusing scrap into secondary and tertiary products. Looking to support local businesses, recycled details such as wooden buttons or feathers are sourced from the United States, and supply chains are kept as transparent as possible. She personally travels to South America in order to obtain her fair trade straw and help to keep the traditions of weaving alive.
