Founded in 2013, NicaHat is a family-run business that produces handwoven hats. Our brand was born with the mission of rescuing the ancestral tradition of Camoapa while promoting the socio-economic development of the artisans within our community.

Our designs highlight the historical and cultural value expressed through different weaving techniques that our artisans have practiced for hundreds of years. We collect pieces of the history of Camoapa, Nicaragua to conceptualise handwoven hats that represent the identity of the Camoapan people, who with their hands have always communicated their way of living and feeling. 

Our designs rescue the culture and tradition of their community and adapt them to current market trends. We believe that each hat has a story that deserves to be known beyond Camoapa and Nicaragua.

With the support of Novica, this business was able to open a store on the online marketplace.

ITC project

Central America - Women and E-Commerce

The project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration (SIECA) and national implementing partners, supports 200 women-led businesses from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama to export their handicrafts through e-commerce channels. Alongside work to improve product quality and design, the women-led businesses are trained and prepared to list on international online marketplaces such as Etsy and eBay, develop and optimize their own websites, use different digital marketing channels to generate traffic and sales, receive online payments, prepare orders for shipment and provide quality customer service.
