Peru: A hat history

Everybody has his own hat, and for each hat its meaning.
Specifically in Peru, and generally in the Andean range, choosing a hat is not a simple thing.
Indeed, every headgear, in addition to its fashion aspects, carries several information about its wearer.
For instance, caps can provide information about the wearer, like his marital status or his social level.
Also, each ethnic group is recognizable thanks to their different hats.
