Taita Marco, Hatmaker of Illuman                           
Making hats for over 60 years, Taita Marco is a true master and the last of his kind.  The wide brimmed hats used by the Otavalo campesinos were replaced with factory made fedoras many years ago but Taita Marco continued to find a market for his work.
