Margarita Gambler Jipijapa

Our Margarita hat is woven by our artisans in yucatan and its finished in Guanajuato.

Jipijapa requires a fair amount of water to grow to about 5-8 feet (1.5 – 2.5 meters) tall. This evergreen is not a true palm. Each plant is a cluster of about one-inch-thick stalks topped by a dark umbrella-like leaf nearly 3 feet wide. Young leaves and shoot tips are edible and said to taste like asparagus. The plants need 2-3 years to mature before its youngest and most delicate light colored leaves can be harvested to make the famous white/cream hats. The lengthy process is still mostly done by hand.

Hats can take anywhere from a couple of days to six months to make.
