Handmade ZZ Top Billy Gibbons African Nudu Hat Color of your Choice



When I first saw the hat that Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top wears, I fell in love with it. I have been figuring out just how I could create a hat with similar likeness that will evoke the same essence as the one he wears  Billy's hat was acquired from West African Cameroon's Bamileke tribe.   My most popular color is the brown.
This is a grueling process: I begin with perforating small holes in one of my six paneled leather beanie type hat. I take 100% Alpaca wool felt and dye into  the color of your choice; each loc is hand dyed and felted.    There are roughly 70 individual 1.5 inch locs in each panel;  there are approximately 420 locs throughout the entire cap.   I weave each  loc into the holes, securing heavy thread. This baby is constructed!!!  This color of the First hat is smoke grey; You have six colors to choose from, all are in muted tones. Check the color chart in above photo: 1:  brown; 2: black; 3: pale blue; 4: pale pink; 5: pale green; 6: stone grey.  There is a 1 inch leather band around the edge of the hat.  The hat is lined with 100% Cotton Designer Fabric.
Once I receive your order it takes me 4 to 6 weeks to complete this hat.  This is my busy season.


My Hat Return Policy:

Returns are not accepted on hats.   I am a stickler about hat hygiene.  Hats that have been placed on one's head may not be returned;  I will gladly accept hats that need alterations or reshaping.  That is why it is imperative that you ask questions prior to bidding,  that will avoid fitting, structural and style problems.

International  Buyers Please Note:

International shipping for this is 55.00.  In order to protect myself, I have to charge the global express fee to ship with guaranteed tracking.

How to measure your head:

 1. Using a tape measure made of plastic or cloth, measure circumference of head just above top of ears and just above the brow. Make sure the tape lies midway on your occipital bone (the little bone in the middle of the back of your head). 

 2.  Place the tape measure at the top center of your head and measure the distance to where you want the brim to place. This will give the crown depth. It is important that you provide these two measurements to get a perfect fit. Remember; please include your hair in both measurements. Don't pull the tape too tightly; let it sit comfortably, i.e. how you'd like the hat to fit.
