Non La/Conical Hats

These hats are made in Chuong Village, a small village in the north of Vietnam with the famous trade of making Non La for four hundred years! It is known that the soil in the village is very dry for planting crops, so the trade of making Non La became the main income's source for the people. These hats are handmade and sewn by Chuong's villagers.

The leaves are actually weeds growing in the forest. They are soften and dried in the sun. Then the leaves are flattened. They were sewn on the brims. A hat usually consists of 16 to 18 rims made from a special kind of bamboo. In order to have a well-made hat, it must be knitted together carefully. The whole process requires great sewing skills and patience. It takes one day to make a hat. Finally, the hat is trimmed and painted with varnish for protection.

Once upon a time, the legend says, when a deluge of rain was falling there descended from the sky a giant woman wearing on her head four huge round leaves as large as the sky itself and stitched together by bamboo sticks. The leaves protected humankind, then still naked, from the rain. The giant messenger from the sky twirled round the leaves on her head to dispel clouds and rains. Those who followed her were taught by her how to grow crops. One day mankind dozed off as they listened to stories narrated by her. When they woke up the goddess was gone. The Vietnamese built a temple in her memory and honored her as the Rain-shielding Goddess.
