Palm leaf hats are a popular hat for summer. Favorited among cowboys, cowgirls and those who’ve never set foot near a horse, they’re durable, flexible, easy to keep nice and they last a long time. I live in mine come summer (like everyday live in them), and this was the first year in the last six that I finally had to buy a new one because my other one had given up the ghost.
One of the best things about a Palm Leaf, is that you can change the look of it daily, if you like. They’re easy to shape. Dunk them in a water tank, the kitchen sink, the bathtub, or hose them off, and you’re ready to get down to business.
In the video below I show you how to crease one. Don’t be scared to get in there, and try.
Best of luck in your hat-creasing endeavors!
