Raffia straw, which is derived from tropical African palms, is familiar with hot climates. Young palm fronds are covered with bast fibers that are later separated and dried to produce natural straw. The flexible, light-weight fibers ultimately produce the carefully woven material used for modern headwear. The design of this high-quality Stetson hat comes from the Australian cattle ranches on which “gamblers” are traditionally worn. The upward-turned brim, which offers great wind and weather protection, is a defining feature of this ultra-stylish, carefully crafted cowboy hat. Contains non-textile parts of animal origin.
