Sombrero Hat – The History & Origin

The sombrero hat is absolutely synonymous with Mexico, where it originated. It is a curiously strange looking hat, looking like a cross between a UFO and the hand piece from an air hockey game, or a giant Chinese wok with a high mound in the middle. Sombreros come in many splendid straw woven designs with great coloring, also they have a chin string to hold the hat in place. They were designed so wide to provide a big shade from the very sunny climate of Mexico, the super wide hat is big enough to cast a shadow over the head, neck and shoulders of the wearer.

Sombrero is a Spanish word which most likely developed from the word sombre, which is Spanish for shadow.

If you are still slightly confused as to what a traditional sombrero looks like, think of the little cartoon mouse Speedy Gonzales. Although a sombrero in the truest sense of the word is this traditional Mexican hat, many fedora and other wide-rimmed hats also get called sombrero.

They are an absolutely unique and fantastic hat and can be bought hand-made from Mexico hatters for very cheap. You can also buy them from many places on the internet for bargain prices.
