Semicalado

Semicalado, for a Fresher Look

As Benjamin Franklin said “At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit; at 40 the judgment.” But it doesn’t matter if will, wit or judgment reign in your life right now, there will always be a constant: style. Whether your style is bold at your 20’s, daring at your 30’s or down to earth at your 40’s, a Semicalado hat is the one accessory that won’t let you down.

I’m not sure if Benjamin Franklin ever actually wore a Semicalado but if he were alive, he would definitely wear it while assembling an improved and modern lightning rod. The open weave would allow him to “vent” new ideas for inventions.

But you don’t have to be a famous inventor to wear this comfortable hat. Just see the beautiful work done on the crown and how delicate the pattern is. The first thing that comes to mind is “How in the world did they do this by hand?” When one pays attention to the details, thousands of questions arise and it’s always fun to try to find out the answers. The most talented and crafty hands in Montecristi invested several months prepping and weaving the toquilla straw and you can see the outcome here. So whenever you have one of these works of art on your hands, spend some time trying to imagine how the pattern was made. You’ll end up saying “I couldn’t do that”. But the people in Montecristi can.
