Natural Big Hats
Our Bolga baskets are handmade in small communities using traditional methods. The women gather together to make the baskets to earn extra income to support their children and families. Each basket is completely unique and handcrafted just for you so the colors may vary.
Baraka’s big hats are the perfect mix of handcrafted beauty and eccentric style. These hand-woven pieces are perfect for lounging in the sun, or protecting your eyes and face while working long hours outside. Because of the leather drawstring, you don't need to worry about this hat falling off your head even when you are cruising down the highway with the top down. The big hat is a versatile product that can be dressed up or down, and used in any situation you see fit.
The Natural Big Hats differentiate from the others because they remain only with their natural wood coloring, so they are perfect for those who do not wish to have too much going on with their outfit, but still be unique and make a statement.
Reshaping Your Hat
- Dip the hat in cold water for 1 minute.
- Remove from water and let it absorb the moisture for 5 minutes.
- Bend the hat to reshape and allow it to dry.
A unique, hand-woven creation made by artists, the colors vary and may not be as shown.
Please treat dimensions as approximate only. Each basket is an individual work of art, made by hand and not to any pre-programmed size, using skills and techniques passed down through generations.
The actual size of the basket you get may be larger, or smaller than the dimensions indicated, depending on the feelings and circumstances of the artist who made it on the day it was made.
