STRAW HAT MONTH – April

As warmer weather arrives, Straw Hat Month reminds us to box up the knitted cap and felt hats for the cooler shade protection of straw hats.

These stylish lids come in a variety of styles. Since the natural product is readily available, ancient man wove straw hats both as protection from the elements and as a vessel to carry small goods.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Wear your favorite straw hat or purchase a new one.   Use #Straw Hat Day to share on social media.

HISTORY

The Headwear Information Bureau sponsored Straw Hat month to remind everyone to put away their cloth and felt hats in exchange for the airier straw hats for spring and summer.
