A gorgeous Fulani Hat! Funky Frog brought this hat back and people just loved it!!! So when i saw it at the Cultural Centre in Bolgatanga, W. Africa i jumped on the opportunity to bring home more... The conical hat makes a really amazing shade screen that gets lots of comments and attention! The shepherds who trek with their cows all over Ghana wear it to protect them from the gruelling African sun! It also works as a wall hanging - a beautiful accent in any room! Wikipidia says: "The Fulani hat is conical fiber hat with leather applications that comes from the Fulani People in West Africa. It is typically worn by the Wodaabe, a nomadic cattle-herder subgroup of the Fulani. This hat is often worn above a Turban. In general, a Fulani hat is a basketry hat made of plant fibers. It is covered in leather both at the brim and top and sometimes with decorative leather elements in the middle. At the very top of the hat there is a knob which is covered in leather. At the base of the hat there is often a chinstrap with a tassel at the end." Additonal $$ has been added for postage and handling.
