One of our internet customers purchased two African straw hats from us, and was kind enough to send these pictures of the hat they were replacing. Now that is a well loved hat! It also looks quite a bit like the West African straw hats we carry, which are made in Burkina Faso. I love getting the background story from customers, especially when we're able to help with a hard to find item. I hope the new hats provide as many good years as the old one did.
