A Survey of Head Gear in Ilocos Norte.
A hat can mean many things, hence perhaps the saying “to try on different hats”. It can define social stature with the way it is worn or the type of hat it is. It may just be a covering to accessorize the head, or a necessity against the forces of nature, or to protect us from a blow from an enemy’s weapon, or just the hazards of traffic. But all in all it is a part of life that has been with us as a people since history began. It is the portable roof over our heads that keeps us safe. It is the shelter that provides us with relief.
