Sombrero is a traditional Mexican hat with a very wide brim, a slightly pointed crown and a chin string. In Spanish, the word “sombrero” means ant type of hat. Sombreros have various designs, colors, woven patterns and decorations. They may be made of straw, like a peasant sombrero, or of felt. Sombreros were very popular with Mexican cowboys, because they provided more shade than any other hat. Nowadays, sombreros are rarely seen in the cities and are worn mostly during national celebrations, as a part of the traditional Mexican outfit. Usually, mariachi (musicians) and charros (horsemen) wear them still.
