As soon as I saw these Yosuzi hats I imagined Carrie Bradshaw wearing one as she traipsed around the West Village. Beautifully colored and handmade in Venezuela, these hats are not only a statement piece but charitable. A portion of each sale goes to a non-profit dedicated to the health, clothing and education of Indian children.
From the Yosuzi site:
The hats are made of 100% Iraka Palm Straw, harvested from the Iraka Palm, and finished with whimsical, handwoven trimmings. Each hat takes about eight hours to weave. Made with a diagonal weaving technique unique to the tribe, the hats’ patterns and symbols represent the spiritual wisdom of Yosuzi’s ancestors.
