ARTISAN CHALAN HAT
This is a classic South-American horserider hat traditionally woven by female artisans in Peru. The toquilla palm tree frond is picked, sun-dried and then stripped into micro-fine strands that are hand-woven together to create this tightly woven hat. The hat is then fixed with a natural tree sap. This is an entirely plant-based product, no synthetic products or chemicals are used. The crown of this hat has a traditional Chalan or horserider teardrop molded crown, while the brim of this hat is fully moldable with use or shaping.
