The Real Deal products are made in Brazil from recycled canvas tarpaulins used by cargo trucks transporting goods. As each hat, pack, and bag is made from various pieces of tarp, no two products ever turn out exactly the same. Some products may feature patches, seams and holes, while others may be adorned with Portuguese writing. All of The Real Deal hats, packs, and bags are hand sewn by Brazilian villagers and reflect the true craftsmanship of the locals. Each tarp’s journey through harsh Brazillian elements serves as a testament to its durability and strength in its new form, while every unique characteristic tells a story of its prior life lived as a lonely truck tarp. The Real Deal is a brand that exemplifies responsible environmental practices and a sustainable lifestyle.
