1974 - Hat making on Saba
During the UNESCO Intangible Heritage National Consultation we found out that Saba's history is rich is skills and crafts. From boat building to lace work to hat making.Hat making was discussed and many older people still know about the craft, but it seems like the actual skill is not really present anymore on the island. Luckily we have this film material :)This is a video from 1974, which was part of the Dutch tv-program Twee Delen Koninkrijk. Again thanks to the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid for the material.Posted by Sabarc - Saba Archaeological Center on Wednesday, January 21, 2015
