This hat seems to be an ode to the abacca plant, grown in a few islands in the Philippines. The palms are shreaded to make a fibre; woven loosely it creates sinamay which forms the brim of this hat, and dyed with natural dyes and it can be woven a dense tinalak straw material that creates the crown of this hat.  

I have not seen this combination of materials so I believe it is really unique to me. I think it makes a wonderful summer sun hat. I have lined it in a silk chiffon print.

Worn pulled down this would fit a small head size (21 1/4”) but works equally well perched higher on the head.
It would arrive with you in one of my vintage style hexagonal hat boxes.
