So lets look at all the manual labor steps that go in to making these fine CALLANAN crochet raffia hats and you may wonder why these hats do not sell for $500 instead of under $100.

|RAFFIA HATS AND RAFFIA STRANDS BEING NATURALLY BLEACHED IN THE SUN.|
I am often asked why some raffia hats cost more than others. There are a number of reason for prices differences.
* The chunkier and more open the crochet, the cheaper it is to make, as it is way faster for the worker to crochet looser.
* The smaller the hat the quicker it is to crochet. Cloches and small brim fedoras are cheaper than fancy crochet large brim sun hats and western shapes.
*The more uniform the raffia color and tighter the crochet, the more expensive the hat.
So, with that in mind, next time you pick a crochet raffia hat up, be in awe at how inexpensive it is!!
