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.
This Indian style pith helmet, a.k.a. the Bombay Bowler, is the most popular pith helmet style in North America.
These hats are made from the cork, or pith, of trees from northern Vietnam using techniques developed 100 years ago by the French during their occupation.
The helmet is functional in both sunny and rainy weather. Pith helmets can be immersed in water, whereby the wearer stays cool during use on hot summer days. Please submerge the outside of the helmet carefully, without allowing water to spill into the interior of the helmet.
