Palm Leaf Hats

Palm Leaf Hats

These are lightweight, durable hats handcrafted by the Maya-Quiche
Indians of Guatemala. The hats are available in any of the shapes
shown, or you may shape the hat yourself. Just soak the hat
in water and then shape. They feature a 1" black

made of padded nylon cloth. Hatbands, eyelets, or a stampede string
may be also be added. Call for sizes not listed below.
