1734 – Laya hat

This hat is a beautiful piece of handicraft work that we were given when we hiked to Laya in Bhutan (about 20 years ago). Laya is an area in the Northwest of Bhutan on the Tibetan border inhabited by the indigenous Layap people. If you Google Laya you can see them wearing these hats. Our trip there was the first big hike we did in Bhutan – it was exhausting but fantastic.
