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.
