About Easy Living Hats
ELH is an Ithaca Based brand that sources certified organic fiber from Peru and employs local creative women to shape and manufacture, package, and fulfill hat orders. Each Hat purchase not only protects the wearer, but it also brings joy and financial freedom to the lives of the women who create them!
As of 2022, ELH operates primarily as an online hat shop, but introduced the option to wholesale hats and is now carried in 25+ retailers across the United States. For those visiting the Finger Lakes you can also shop ELH at the famous Ithaca Farmers Market.
Easy Living Hats are purchased by women and men who need a hat for outdoor living and seek out sustainable brands. Our Hat-loving community spends a lot of time outdoors, cares about skin-protection, and needs an accessory that is packable and durable for any adventure!
Easy Living Hats was opened in 2017 by Olivia Ashline, who formerly owned and operated The Art and Found Sustainable Clothing Store in downtown Ithaca, NY. Her background in product design and marketing, and love for a good hat has brought Ithaca and beyond an ethically produced design that encourages each recipient to get outdoors and appreciate the environment around them!
