Did you know that tuque is the technical term for beanie, or that fedoras were at first a feminine fashion and that the name comes from a 19th century play about heroine Princess Fedora? Hats of any style have history, and whatever groovy noggin-topper you’re in search of, Alice in Hulaland probably has it. Or check out the ultra-chic and ultra-intricate lauhala masterpieces at Native Intelligence. They’ll run you a pretty penny, but once you’ve learned a little about the arduous preparation of just the raw materials—let alone the tedious geometry of its weaving—you’ll soon see it’s a steal of a deal.
