We’ve been traveling to Colombia for over ten years now, and we have so enjoyed watching Cartagena take center stage. I do not believe a more rich-with-culture, fun and festive destination exists so close to the United States! When we happened upon these Handmade Colombian Straw Hats with Removable Pom Pom Hat Bands, we simply couldn’t leave without them. These handwoven Colombian hats are made by the indigenous Wayuu tribe of Northern Colombia, a culture so rich with history that one could listen to stories for years.
Each Colombian Straw Hat will add flair and personality to any day on the beach. These hats would also make a great accompaniment on a hike, casual bike ride, or a stroll around the farmer’s market. Each hat is carefully constructed by hand to be sturdy, waterproof, and made from locally sourced woven palm. These gorgeous hats perfectly embody the blend of fun yet elegant sophistication that IS Cartagena. The addition of the cotton pompom hat band, which is removable, gives you two flexible ways to wear this beautiful hat. Your hat will look fabulous alongside bold patterns or simple solids. You are sure to receive tons of compliments on your fun, bold headwear, while also receiving the built-in benefits that come with wearing a hat. Reducing your sun exposure will help prevent sun damage, which will keep you from developing wrinkles and skin cancers. Wear your hat with or without the pom pom hat band to switch up your style.
Each Handmade Colombian Straw Hat with Removable Pom Pom Hat Band is made with natural red and black woven palm. The total diameter of each hat is 13.5 inches, with a height of 5 inches. The interior measures 6.5 inches in diameter. Black cotton pompom hat band sits perfectly and is removable.
