I saw it, with its two round sacks tied tightly and men standing nearby with their hats off.
The plaiting is done by country women, while the hats are made up in factories.
Among these may be noticed thin strips of willow and cane and the fronds of numerous palms. "Brazilian" hats made from the fronds of the palmetto palms, Sabal palmetto and S.
The most valuable straw for plaits is grown in Tuscany, and from it the well-known Tuscan plaits and Leghorn hats are made.
I thought I was gonna need funny hats and party favors for the celebrating going on around here.
