palm leaf sombrero - la dama vanilla cream
we traveled deep into rural Michoacán, Mexico to find the makers of this beautiful sombrero I found at a market in Mexico City a few months earlier. I went by word of mouth, door-by-door, asking for the makers of the sombrero de palma and finally I found them, a sweet brother and sister duo who have been making hats for over 50 years!
our wide-brim sun hats have been intricately handwoven by Simón and his sister Socorro who learned the craft from their parents, and have now taught it to the next generation. our sombrero dama sun hat is stylish, will protect your face from the sun, and is great for travel. best of all with this purchase you're providing an income opportunity for our artisan partners in Mexico.
