Ngop is a Thai Farmer’s hat with a raised conical but a flat crown. In contrast with the conical Asian hat, the crown is flat, and the design is intricate. Ngop is made from the old palm leaves and a plaited bamboo frame, which are easily found in Thailand. As the frame is plated, it gives room for air circulation, making the hat breathable. Further, there is an inner band that makes the hat stable on the wearer’s head.

Ngop is indigenously produced in the Bang Pahan District of Thailand’s Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Province. It is considered to be an OTOP product that gives stimulus to local entrepreneurship. With a decline in traditional agricultural methods, the hat’s use in farming has reduced, but the hat is a key feature of the Thai cultural heritage.
