This unique fair-trade Amazon Hat Band was hand-made by a native artisan from the Ampiyacu region of the Peruvian Amazon. This hat band is stylish and sturdy.  It is woven from one-inch wide chambira palm fiber. that is 24.5 inches long with 2 inches of chord on both ends so it can be tied around most hats.  This band will add a distinct look to any straw, felt or leather hat with a full brim.  It can also double as a head band.

This model was designed by Bora artisans to represent the large anaconda snake found throughout the Amazon rainforest. The two variations are the classic black and white and the jungle green. Each strap comes with a tag listing the artisan’s name and community and the plants they used to make it.This hat band was hand woven by a native artisan from the Bora community of Brillo Nuevo on the Yaguasyacu River. A few hat bands whose color has slightly faded after prolonged exposure to the sun are available at a discounted price.
