Rasta Profile - Loxley, Leather Hats


Loxley - Leathercrafter from Linstead

Loxley aka TRACY has been making Rasta Leather Crowns for over 30 years.  Originally he picked up the trade by watching a friend who would visit from Downtown Kingston.  On these visits Tracy's brethren would make crowns and Tracy found it fascinating, so fascinating that he caught on and has been creating his own style since.  Tracy spends days on each leather crown weaving elaborate peaks and shaping them just his way.  Each Leathercrafter imprints his own style and identity on his pieces and Tracy's is definitely a strong lasting rim and a signature peak.
