This hat is made from palm fibers from the Raffia plant. A good natural alternative to Panama straw is the natural fiber from the Raffia palm. The membrane from the leaves can be pulled off, after which they are air-dried or added together to obtain a stronger structure. The natural growth area of the palm is Africa as well as Central & South America. The hat of Raffia straw is therefore made of a 100% natural sun-dried plant material, without any chemical bonding or artificial process along the way.
