Hats from 22 Regions Admired by Expo 2020 Dubai Attendees | News

The Commission for the Promotion of Peru for Export and Tourism (Promperú) reported today that attendees of Expo 2020 Dubai will be able to appreciate a beautiful collection of 38 hats, from 22 of the 25 regions of our country, which are found as part of the attractions of the Peru Pavilion.

“Traditional Peruvian hats, which are of a great variety and aesthetic richness, not only serve to protect themselves from the weather, but also to differentiate men and women according to the community of origin, in addition to providing information on their marital status and, in many cases their areas of origin ”, said the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Roberto Sánchez.

We are proud of the exhibition that is part of the Peru Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, which shows the cultural richness of the different regions of our country, he added.

Differentiated accessories

The promoter explained that the Andean peoples generally wear hats, monteras or chullos while the Amazonians wear crowns and headdresses.

Since pre-Columbian times, the men and women of Tahuantinsuyo wore head ornaments as a way of identifying their origin. Over time, new materials, techniques and forms of hats were incorporated.

Currently, in many Andean communities the cloth or felt hat has been adopted, and in the coastal populations, the vegetable fiber hats.

In the Amazon, men and women wear crowns and headdresses to decorate their heads, they use rigid plant fibers or bark for the crowns and cotton for the headdresses. With the beads incorporated into the repertoire of materials, wreaths are woven with the iconography of each of the 48 native peoples.
