FIRST ASNOT’S HATMAKING AWARD
“Re-visiting tradition with a present-day perspective”

The contest

Tradition creates practical objects with an intuitive design that evolves with its use, adapting to the needs of each era, place and user. These are necessary objects for daily life, designed for optimal use, which have achieved simplicity with perfect functional efficiency through years and inherited knowledge obtained through practice and profession. This utilitarian craftwork, inspired by tradition, represents a richness that is often threatened by disappearance.

What happens to those objects that, like traditionally worn hats, have seen their evolution interrupted due to disuse?

How would they have evolved if they had continued to fulfill their real function? 

Would they evolve in their aesthetics or materials? Would they lead to new uses?

To attempt to creatively answer these questions, we propose interpreting three characteristic hats of Galician tradition: “pucho”, “sancosmeiro” and “monteira”
