Description: Hat of natural straw. Similar to Peruvian folk wear, the hat has a conical crown, flattened at top, with smaller projecting cone at top from which extend red and yellow ribbons. The sides of the crown have alternating pattern bands of straw, including black, natural, and mixed, some with red yarn woven into them. The wide, flat brim is edged in black, and has a decorative stair-step pattern woven into the rolled under edge. From the sides of the brim, near the base of the crown, extend red and yellow ribbons (near front at each side), and a group of red, yellow, and green ribbons (at back). Unlined.
