A Reliable Headgear: "Salakot"

One of the most widely used traditional headgear in the Philippines is salakot. Having a wide brim, the conical salakot is typically made of rattan strips. The salakot provides protection; rain or shine. Here is a picture of our salakot:

It can be recalled that from 1994 to 2002, television network IBC-13 used a colorful salakot in its logo:

Meanwhile, Juan dela Cruz, the national personification of the Philippines, is commonly depicted as wearing the salakot, in combination with Barong Tagalog, long pants, and tsinelas (slippers).
