Few straw fibres are employed in its initial creation, to which fibres are progressively added until a width is attained that varies between five and 10 centimetres. To weave the hat body, a mould (a block of wood) is used to gradually produce the shape to where the brim begins, which is the final element of a hat of seven to 15 centimetres.
After that comes the "remate" (tying off), which consists of doing a special interweaving to finish the weaving process. The next stage in the creation of a hat is performed by women and is known as the "azocada" (tightening), which consists of tightening the tied-off fibres to keep the weave from coming undone, followed by clipping the excess fibres. Then the hat is washed, "whitened" or dyed, and dried in the sun.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT SIZE FOR A HAT. Get a tape measure and put it around your head.Place it just above your ears where the hat is expected to sit. If you have a hat that fits well, put it on. Look and feel where it rests. Measure in that same spot. For most people, that just above the center of the forehead in front, and on the upper side of the "lump" in back. The tape should be above the tops of your ears on both sides.
Most people like their hats to rest about half an inch above the ears. Lower is likely to be a problem later. Be sure to measure in the place where you want your hat to rest.
