This is one of the hats most commonly worn by men in West Africa. In Burkina Faso, where these are made, they are called “bonnets”. Many Americans know it as a “kufi”, a “koofy” or a “coofy”, the hat worn by Muslims when they pray. It is also known as a skull cap or a beanie. It is woven completely of cotton, by hand. African men tend to wear these on top of their head, like a crown so we have had these made to meet American/Western standards whereby the hat can cover the head, conforming to the shape of the man’s (or woman’s) head. We have classified them into 4 size categories. Those pictured here are all the size we consider to be Medium. We regret we have no way to be more specific about the sizes but to give you an idea of the way they fit, I measured my own head: 22″ all the way around. Those we are calling here Medium are those that fit over my head, but are tighter than the way most people would prefer a hat to fit. Therefore, if your head measures a little less than 22″ around, then this is the hat that may fit your head. When you order please be sure to indicate the letter of the hat you prefer. We will send that very hat.
