Santana Salvador Pinch Front
Inspired by Carlos Santana.
a great teardrop crown and solid pinch on the front. A grosgrain hatband with multicolored rope braids runs around the top of this shantung straw hat. Inside there's an interesting Latin inspired Queen playing a guitar and surrounded by a bed of roses. The sweatband, though a comfortable leather, looks as if it's a wood carving of a Mayan ruin.
ie. Shantung is a material made out of rice paper that gets rolled and cut into strands and then hand woven. It can take an artisan several hours, if not days, to finish just one Shantung body. Shantung is a premier material to make hats because of its durability, softness and freshness.
