Chao Mao (Nest Hat) / Reversible Hat

Chao Mao (Nest Hat)
Chao Mao (Nest Hat)

Chao Mao (Nest Hat) is a sun hat that can be worn on both sides. One side of the hat shows light crossing under leaves, while the other side shows a nest made with tree branches. After taking off the hat, there are three baby birds sitting in the nest waiting to be fed.
Chao Mao is a conceptual product of the 1999 Taiwan earthquake which occurred in Ji-Ji. After 1999, Ji-Ji underwent active reconstruction. The most characteristic landscape of Ji-Ji today is the Green Tunnel. The concept of Chao Mao hopes that visitors buy Green Tunnel products after visiting the landscape, allowing them to re-experience the relaxed lifestyle of Ji-Ji.
