Ultra-lightweight and textured straw hat directly from the tropics.
Long brim, aqua blue
Macuira Sun Hat - Aqua Blue
HANDMADE IN LA GUAJIRA
BY GARY GONZALEZ
The eye-catcher for a perfect summer outfit. The natural colour of the crown gently contrasts with the natural and aqua-blue striped pattern of the brim. We recommend bringing a touch of exhuberance by adding our Cascada ribbon, handmade of cotton and rounded off with six tassels in shades of blue.
The Macuira sun hats are hand-braided in small batches by artisans of the Wayuu tribe, featuring geometric patterns typical from their culture. The Wayuu weave flat yarns of Mawisa or Isii straw bands, sourced from a local palm growing in the only green spot of La Guajira peninsula using the traditional weaving technique known as Sarga.
Each hat is hand-crafted by Gary González and take up to one day to complete.
