FAQ

Why did you start Rebel & the Gypsea?

Rebel & the Gypsea was founded by 2 friends who know each other since elementary school. They spend their whole school career together, even studied at the same University and got the same Master’s degree. Nature inspired them to start with their brand Rebel & the Gyp’sea’. Both women always had a love for fashion and a certain passion for business which helped them to produce the idea of a hat business. Since there are no high-quality, fashion forward and affordable hats in the market that an average individu could afford, we felt we could fill in that gap. The price you pay for our hats is only a fraction of the price you would need to pay at a custom hat maker and the quality is better than you can find in your average multimillion-dollar retailer. Sustainability and supporting a good cause are important values at Rebel & the Gypsea.

What is the mission of Rebel & the Gypsea?

Rebel & the Gypsea’s mission is to inspire our customers on a daily basis and puts a focus on exploring the world with our hat. We want to connect people and the planet we live in. This is important for Rebel & the Gypsea because we have been so disconnecting ourselves from the natural world that it is easy to forget that nature remains as giving as ever, even as it vanishes bit by bit (like the corals we want to safe).

Where are Rebel & the Gypsea’s hats & hat straps produced?

Rebel & the Gypsea hats and hatstraps are hand-made in various places around the world. We make sure the processes are in place with standards that we're proud of. The hats are designed in Belgium and produced in factories around the world, including Asia. Also our creative family helps us to produce unique and custommade hatstraps. Our ‘Hat’quarters are located in Belgium.

Where does Rebel & the Gypsea source materials?

Rebel & the Gypsea hats and hatstraps are sourced from materials around the world. We support sustainable fashion and also reuse fabrics that we come across in Belgium. This all to make sure we form a unique custom made product.
