Description

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.
