Yes it’s a hat! But not just any hat, it’s the Andean Chullo. First used in the South American highlands by farmers looking to combat the bitter cold and the biting wind, it has now gained fashion kudos across the western world and can be bought on pretty much any high street. I’m sure my mother made me wear something like this when I was a toddler and the photos used to haunt me. Not any more though, turns out I was trendy before my time!
So you can now look as if you have travelled through South America, having only gone to the stall outside M&S… but where’s the fun in that? Click here to find out how to join our expedition in South America. You may even get to see the largest chullo ever made, doesn’t that sound exciting…?!
