Horse hats are one of the specialties of Binh Dinh in Vietnam. In the old days, only mandarins and landlords had reserved right to wear these horse hats while the common people were allowed to wear other ordinary kinds of conical leaf hats. For that reason, the horse hats require meticulous processing with silver or copper peaked cap and embroidered of dragon, phoenix, unicorn, peacock, apricot orchids and other special pattern with lace on the rib cage very carefully. The frame of horse hat is made from a “Giang” tree, a kind of tree growing in primeval forests.
