African Market Baskets
This fair trade West African straw hat is both beautiful and practical. Tightly woven and lightweight, it makes an excellent sun hat. It is natural colored with an indigo blue, red and orange pattern, and has a braided leather adjustable chin strap. It will fit a 21"-22" circumference head and the brim is 15" in diameter. It is handmade in Ghana from elephant grass and goat skin, and is unlined.
If you order this hat you will receive the exact one pictured. Each one is unique and handmade, and there is only one. See our full selection of African sun hats here.
To shape the hat, wet it and put it over your head, then remove it and allow it to dry. It will conform to the shape of your head and also will stretch as much as 1/4" if necessary.
