Hats are an indispensable article of clothing in the Tibetan attire, both casually and formally. Possibly the strong sun’s rays on the plateau brought forth Tibetans’ special liking, even obsession if you may call it, to hats.


Traditional felt hats were made using unsophisticated molds made of earth and wood etc. , rendering most of the hats cone shaped. Now we use different hand made molds to make hat shapes that are in style in today’s world.






Nomads’ everyday activities also provide us the inspiration for how to accessorize these hats.


We have four kind of hat bands for this bowler hat.The first is a cross pattern that appears in many Tibetan fabrics and traditional felt hats. We call the third hat band pack yak pattern, since this flat-shaped braid is frequently used when securing the loads on pack yaks’ back, for it helps to distribute the pressure more evenly around the body, making the animal less uncomfortable. The fourth bands is called "Water Eye" pattern: since such pattern is believed to have talismanic power, this kind of braid appears frequently in temples or wore as someone’s amulet.
