A little history of the Tierra Caliente (Calentano) Hat:
The Calentano hat comes from a region in Mexico known as tierra caliente, or hot earth, made up of the states of Michoacán, Guanajuato, Guerrero and the State of Mexico. The hat has sides that are turned up and held tightly with a black ribbon. The Calentano hat style is said to have originated in Tlapehuala, Guerrero, (where natural palm is abundant) and is made from palm leaves that have been left to dry in the sun, giving the hat its beige color. You can now find variations of the original hat that add colors and different bands.
