Herbert Kohler, Jr. gleefully accepts the gift of Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee R. marcos, the traditional hat called “kattukong”. The hat is a sign of nobility and was historical worn by village and farmer leaders in Ilocos Norte. Kohler, president and chairman of the Kohler Company, best known for its plumbing product, together with his family dined at the Malacañang of the North in Paoay on January 4, 2014 upon the invitation of the governor.
