The traditional Basotho hat, called "mokorotlo", is a conical woven hat with a distinctive
topknot. It is a symbol of Lesotho's unification. The hat depicts a mountaintop with the name Mount Qiloane, which is
conical and topknotted. You will find the mountain close to Thaba Bosiu. The conical top is visible from the fortress and tomb of
King Moshoeshoe I. You find the hat in the national Lesotho flag.
The hat is the best known of a fine range of grass-works made in Lesotho.
