Product description – Vietnamese Traditional Hat
Non Quai Thao is the vietnamese name for this hat. Hand made Vietnamese hat, northern style! A great authentic vietnamese item, great for home decor as well!!!
Nón quai thao has been part of the popular costume for young women at festivals while nón ba tầm are common for elder women while working
Many people are also unable to distinguish nón ba tầm from nón quai thao.
Nón quai thao is actually a common name rather than depicting a particular kind of hat.
Nón ba tầm with large diameters of up to 70cm were called nón mười. Nón ba tầm with a deep body and high edges were used at important events, while lower edged hats were used when working and trading at markets.
People did not distinguish hats according to their strings, as the strings could be taken out. Hats and strings were produced and exchanged as two different items. At first, the string was made of bamboo, then it was replaced by cloth or silk.
Quai thao is a kind of string for hats made of special silk by workers from Đơ Thao Village, Triều Khúc Commune, on the western rural district of today’s Hà Nội. The string was weaved and dyed very carefully and turned into a high-ranked kind of hat string. The string actually cost much more than the hat itself.
