Cockscomb Hat

The cockscomb hat is worn by Yi women from the age of three until they are married, and then they wear a wrapped scarf. The shape is based on a legend involving a cock, or rooster. It is worn with the larger curved shape facing forward, hovering over the wearer’s forehead.

The signature cockscomb shape would be cut out of a hard fabric and then decorated with thousands of small silver beads, polychromatic silk embroidery, and gold ribbon. The inside is lined with cotton.
