Versatile Hat, Yao Shan Tea Garden

Uploaded: January 07, 2007


"The Coolie, an extremely wide semi-conical hat made from bamboo and seagrass is both light and extremely functional. It provides effective protection from the sun, while allowing ventilation to the scalp. It doubles as a hands-free umbrella, strainer, and carrying basket. A durable hat, it can withstand weather and weight far exceeding what what would expect, and a strap holds it in place against high winds. Should emergency kindling be needed, non-essential parts of the hat can be used. If the bamboo portion is boiled sufficiently it will make an unpleasant but nourishing emergency meal" ~Merriam Webster Dictionary
Location: Yao Shan Tea Garden, Guilin, northwest of Hong Kong.
