Around the World in 80 Hats

Around the World in 80 Hats infographic

Around the World in 80 Hats infographic from Venere is a quick culture trip around the world with a little help from a fashionable article of clothing, hats.

All cultures of the world use the clothes they wear to define how they live, work, and respect their history. From the first world to the third world, hat styles especially have become important iconic markers of cultural dress. This infographic looks at 80 culturally significant hats from all corners of the earth, showing just how wonderfully diverse and interesting humanity can be.

A story like this depends on the visuals.  You have to see the hats to understand the history and connection to each country.  The footer should include the URL to the infographic landing page in text so readers can find the original when other sites post the infographic without the link.

Thanks to Thomas for sending in the link!

The Jamaican headwear shown is not called a Rastacap in Jamaica. It's called a tam.

Great report about hats. I Love them. Just I want to said that "panama hats" are not original from Panama. The name is "Sombrero de paja toquilla o panama hat" and are from Ecuador"

The continent concept of the hats is interesting. I love.

This article is good, but contains a very common error. The hat called Panama is not from there, it is from Ecuador, when the construction of the canal began, thousands of hats were taken there because they are cheap in Ecuador. This hat is typical of the Ecuadorian coast and until today they are made in Ecuador and exported to Panama.
