- 100% Mawisa palm straw
- Water proof oil paint
- Crown height: 12cm; Wing width: 13cm; Hat diameter: 44cm (All approx.)
- Natural palm colour and black oil paint
This traditional hat is made using the natural straw from the Mawisa palm and the black colour produced by black oil paint. Today the artisans use other colours such as red, yellow, blue, and green, also produced with paints, which they buy from intermediaries. The tools for elaborating the hat are the hands, straw from Mawisa, thread, needle, and scissors. For the elaboration of a single hat, an artisan may take a day or a day and a half, depending on the skill and time he has for its realisation. They do not posses a workshop or a specialised space for its production; instead they are elaborated by hand at home.
MADE IN LA GUAJIRA, COLOMBIA
Due to its hand craftsmanship, hats can vary slightly in size and have some imperfections, which is part of its uniqueness.
