What an amazing seller! She went out of her way to fix a problem with my order that was actually my own fault. The hat is wonderful & well-made, too, just fantastic! This shop is highly, highly recommended, worth every penny!
Pua Papale - Southern Beauty with a Tropical Touch!
I've been designing Cowgirl Hats, Floppy Hats, and Fedoras for women for nearly ten years.
I went to the Guadalupe River for a long Girls Only Weekend and forgot to bring a hat, so I went into a local store and bought a cowboy hat. I rounded the corner and saw my daughter standing there with the most beautiful foam plumeria in her hand.
Nine years earlier, my husband had surprised me with an amazing Hawaiian vacation. While we were there, I fell in love with the plumeria! They were fragrant, sturdy, colorful, and feminine. There was nothing about this flower I didn't love!
I hadn't seen another one since our vacation and when I saw my daughter standing there with it, I decided then and there that I was going to do beautiful and fun things with them! I'm from Texas, so the natural thing for me to do was incorporate Southern Charm with Tropical Beauty and pua papale was born!
pua papale, in Hawaiian means (literally), Flower Hat.
Owner, Owner, Designer
I've been designing Cowgirl Hats for nearly ten years. I had an epiphany while floating down the Guadalupe River & turned my dream into a reality! I love what I do & I hope you love what you see! Southern by the grace of God!
I've recently relocated to the sunny sea-side town of Hampstead, North Carolina.
I love the south, where the ladies can kick up their boots & always look like a million bucks!
Take a look around and if you don't see what you're looking for, please don't hesitate to contact me - I do custom designs and will go above and beyond to accommodate your vision!
My goal is for each and every customer to not just like their Pua Papale, but to LOVE it!
