Due to the handmade nature of the Pith Helmets, please be advised that there may be some minor imperfections in the construction of the hat. These imperfections should not hinder the look or the wear of the helmet.
By popular demand, we have introduced this French style pith helmet in a size range for people with bigger heads.
Like our regular helmets, the size is adjustable by way of a velcro ending to the cotton sweatband.
Otherwise, the helmet is identical in quality and materials to the regular French style pith helmet.
This French style pith helmet is the original design from Vietnam.
A hundred years ago, the French discovered the advantages of the material used to make these hats.
The pith is from trees in northern Vietnam and has properties that make it both a good sun and rain shield.
These helmets are made in Vietnam using the techniques inherited by the former French occupiers.
