The bowl-like, brimless hat has a light field and a medium and dark brown band near the bottom and the top. There are three repeats of the same design in the space between these bands: two dark brown triangles, two light right triangles, and two dark brown right triangles. There is a dark zigzag band near the top center of the hat. The top center is a circle of medium brown.
