Sobrero voltiado traditional hat from Colombia. Made of Gynerium sagittatum known locally as caña flecha. Vueltiao is a Colombian regionalism from the Caribbean Region. The value of the hat is determined by the number of laps used and its  flexibility. The more flexible the hat is, the higher quality and price it is.
