African Straw Hats

 Our handwoven, fair trade West African straw hats are beautiful, durable broad-brimmed sun hats. They are sometimes called Bolga hats because they come from the Bolgatanga region of northern Ghana. They are woven from a wild savanna grass called kinkahe or elephant grass, and have a braided leather adjustable chin strap. They are imported by African Market Baskets, a longstanding member of the Fair Trade Federation.

These hats come in a variety of sizes, so please measure your head around the forehead so you know the circumference and select accordingly. Each hat's size is included in the description. Each image is of an individual, specific hat which we only have one of, and if you order it you will receive that exact hat. If you need to exchange or return your hat, we make it easy.
