Some of the earliest hats were depicted in tomb paintings found at Thebes and they have been constructed from sheep’s wool, straw, cardboard, grass, horsehair, velvet, tulle, animal hides and adorned with feathers and furs, flowers and ribbons, jewels and paper.
There has never been a time where hats were not present, in some form. They have been status symbols and fashion statements. Hailed as useful headwear to keep the sun out of one's eyes or to keep the top of one's head warm or touted as the ultimate in chic attire.
Hats have always served some purpose. Whether that purpose is practical or wildly extravagant, doesn’t really matter. Hats are here to stay!
So please come join us at 1000 Markets. Take a look around. You will find the casual and utilitarian, the traditional and flamboyant. The two things they will all have in common is that you can wear them on your head and that they are well-made with attention to detail.
