Most Extraordinary Karagumoy Hat

Most Extra-ordinary Karagumoy Hat

This karagumoy hat may appear as just another utility hat, the same hat  that farmers and workers use daily in the field to shield them from the harsh tropical sun. But wait until you see the weaver.

The weaver of this hat is completely blind.

Maria was born blind. She hails from the mountain village of Kapangihan in Bulusan.


Maria from the village of Kapangihan finishes off first in the hat weaving contest under the special category of the Bulusan Livelihood Skills Competition, July 18, 2013.
