UQSHA remains faithful to the tradition of hand weaving by using customary techniques known as the “brisa” and “llano”. Brisa refers to the technique of knitting using a single strand. Llano refers to a finer weave using two pieces of straw. This gives the hat its identity and captures the traditions and culture of ancestral hand weaving.
