This gorgeous earthy tam was inspired by our walks in the forest….the dark brown of bark and earth, the bright green of moss, and the soft tam colors of the myriad of mushrooms growing along the trail.

It features a drawstring around the base of the tam to ensure that it fits snug and stays put even in the most ferocious of winds!

The Forest Slouchie Tam is perfect for men and women alike and is ideal for dreadlocks, although it will look equally hip gracing regular hair.
