Book: Hats from Mozambique by Paulus Gerdes

From the introduction:

This booklet “Hats from Mozambique” presents photographs of woven hats I have collected since the 1980s from four coastal regions of Mozambique: the districts of Palma and Mecúfi in the Cabo Delgado Province in the North, and the districts around the Bay of Inhambane and the Manjacaze District in the Gaza Province in the South. Some of the hats presented here, like the ones from Palma and the hats from Inhambane decorated with band or plane patterns, are exceptional and very rare.

I trust that the photographs may convey an impression of the beauty and diversity of hats made in Mozambique, and of the creativity and imagination of the women and men who weave them.
