This simple straw hat is handwoven by the artisan Thinh in Cam Kim Island, Vietnam.

Thinh learnt the art of straw weaving years ago, developing a new-found passion and thus starting his micro-enterprise selling straw hats.

The reeds used for the hats are sourced naturally from the fields, and Thinh can currently craft about 5 hats a day.
