YOSUZI, is a lifestyle brand celebrating the native myths and cultures of South American tribes. Born and raised in Venezuela, Yosuzi, which means “cactus flower” in the Guajiro native dialect, spent her childhood immersed in the traditional ceremonies, stories and artisanal crafts of her ancestral Guajiro heritage.The hats are made of 100% Iraka Palm Straw, harvested from the Iraka Palm, and finished with whimsical, handwoven trimmings. Each hat takes about eight hours to weave. Made with a diagonal weaving technique unique to the tribe, the hats’ patterns and symbols represent the spiritual wisdom of Yosuzi’s ancestors. These masterpieces have become a popular accessory at Toscani and we are one of the fortunate few retailers to sell the collection worldwide!
