This is a six panel Women’s Bow Cap with firm little brim off its front and a smart big bow accent on the side. You can crush the main boy of the hat tight against the bill for easy packing and traveling when not wearing the hat. Also, the wool blend of the Bow Cap makes it a perfect choice for chilly fall evenings and cold Winter nights. Pair this hat with an alpaca scarf to keep extra warm this winter.
The origin of hats is, as with so many other things, lost to the mists of time. The earliest hat known to archaeologists and historians was found on the head of Ötzi, the Ice Man, who died approximately 5600 years ago, and it was hardly a new invention even then. Hats have been invented and reinvented for as long as people have needed to display status or protect themselves from the elements. The first people to wear hats probably weren’t even Homo sapiens – think about that!
Every time you don a cap or a cloche, a bonnet or a beret, a tuque or a turban, fedora or a fez, a kufi, or a kippah, or a keffiyah… You are engaging in an age-old display of fashion and culture that is universal across all of humanity.
