This hand woven hat looks a lot like macrame, even though it is woven, not knotted. Beautiful arrays of little holes cover the side of the crown. A see through pattern is also near the edge of the brim, though most of the brim is solid.
This hat was hand woven from toquilla palm straw in Peru.
It was made using the same hand weaving methods as “Panama” hats that are made in Ecuador.
Toquilla palm is a very flexible straw ideal for the careful bending and tight weaving necessary to make this hat.
We had these hats carefully picked out by our emissary and hand carried back from Peru.
We have only a single hat like this, though given enough time, we could probably another woven that is similar.
The head size is Medium – about 52 cm (20 1/2")
The brim is about 4.5" wide. The crown is 4" high.
The is no inner lining, sweat band or head band, just pure straw.
Please measure your head with a tape measure & tell us in the checkout notes how many inches or cm it is around.
