Made by Artisans

Tula Hats are made by artisan families along Lake Patzcuaro in Michoacán Mexico. This Purepecha community has been producing palm hats for over four centuries. We are proud to have worked with the same families for over 30 years. Together we are committed to keeping this ancestral tradition of hat making alive.

Traditional celebrations

This image still and video show our friends hosting the Corpus Celebration.

Any palm hats that don't make the cut and have a slight flaw are collected the entire year and are joyfully thrown to the waiting crowd during the Corpus Christi celebration. During this celebration which takes place all around Lake Patzcuaro in June the people gather to receive the goods that are thrown by the artisans. I have been told that it is a way to give back and to share your good fortune with your fellow community members.

Let the hats Fly!
