Murut Sun Hat
Mid 20th c

Another stunning hat. This one is called Silaung. The production of these three sided hats is in decline as the people moved to modern alternatives.


The three sides, each with a wide stripe of woven black and natural diamond designs, the top with a few red beads, the three side at the rim, worked with a wavy abd straight line, edged in thicker stained red rattan, the inside with a round head shaped piece.

17 in; 44 cm widest.  Height 10 1/2 in; 27 cm


Very good.


My thanks to Jesse Joy for the information. Jesse is writing a booklet on sun hats made by the indigenous peoples of Sabah.
