The Margarite crocheted classic floppy hat boasts a beautifully detailed decorative weave throughout the crown and along the seam of the dramatic oversized brim. Itâs large and chic brim is meant to keep you in the shade and out of the sunâs harmful rays from all angles. Dress it up for a daytime occasion or pair it with sunglasses to lay low at the beach. Paper straw is made by rolling paper into a yarn, imitating the Palmata straw used to make traditional Panama hats. Paper straw is surprisingly durable, lightweight, and looks great when dyed.
