We kind of don’t want to tell you about YOSUZI hats because they’re that amazing! We contemplated keeping the secret all to ourselves but alas, we’ve decided to turn over the keys. Designer, Yosuzi, incorporated her native Venezuelan roots and background in fashion to create these incredible handwoven hats. According to their site: 

“The hates are made of 100% Ikara Palm Straw, harvested from the Ikara Palm, and finished with whimsical, handwoven trimmings. Each hat takes about 8 hours to weave, made with a diagonal weaving technique unique to the tribe, the hats’ patterns and symbols represent the spiritual wisdom of Yosuzi’s ancestors.”

Whoa – deep AF. Totally worth every penny.
