Handcrafted by Katharina Cruz Atelier in Berlin
Buntal hats are manufactured from buntal fiber extracted from buri palms (Corypha spp.). Most buntal fibers are sourced from the buri plantations of Quezon Province/Phillippines. Traditionally, it is extracted by from seven to ten-year old buri palms. Three to six leaf stem (at least 1.8 m in length) are cut from a tree twice each year. The base of the stem is skinned and the exposed fiber beaten with a bolo blade until they are separated into bundles. The name of the fiber comes from this process.
