This traditional farmer’s hat was made with the same technique as the estera or palm mat for which exactly eleven palm leaves are needed. To find out how to weave a palm hat, just look how María Hernández does it. She used several tools such as a wooden needle to sew the plaited palm leaves, an iron needle for the tomizas (palm rope), a small needle to prepare the palm leaves, a knife and scissors and of course her hands, as the traditional craft is handmade.
