Not only see they selling white conical hat, we will take you to the local host to see how they make a normal conical hat. It’s lovely to sit down on the small chair and look out the yard full of “Coi leaves” being dried under the sunlight to make it become a durable material. Next is to prepare a “Coi circle” from sharpen the bamboo into slender cord and bend it into basic circle. And then, can you believe that the craftsman will add more extra 16 layers of “Coi leaves” on this circle. And when the hat is finished, they will fasten a pink silk inside as “quai non”.
