Created centuries ago by Andean mountain tribes, chullo style hats are enjoyed far beyond Peru in Europe and the US. This season, Mayu has designed a signature alpaca flap hat for you. Inspired from old traditions, Mayu’s chullo is made from 100% alpaca, and combines both elegance and style! It took us weeks to perfect this piece in Peru and now it is done VERY WELL with attention to detail, which you will surely notice once you see it.
Mayu’s chullo is available in two color combinations – charcoal with beige trim and cream with brown trim (pictured at right). It is thick, chunky and loose, and super cool earflaps to keep you extra warm! The hat is unisex, and, thanks to the light style, can be worn with anything. Mayu’s Alpaca chullo has been flying off the shelves as it makes a perfect and memorable present for the coming Christmas.
You can find chullos in the Peruvian marketplace, but none of them are as unique as these one-of-a-kind designs. This hat was chosen as one of the best Fair Trade products in Chicago as it was featured on the cover of Chicago’s Mindful Metropolis. Remember to order one for you or your loved ones this winter!
