Gaddang bachelor basket hat/Saklong or Soklong. Extremely fine dense basketry woven over a wood base and decorated with glass beads. Giant butterfly shaped clam shells pierced with tattoo like markings hang suspended from each side and a cord of braided human hair. The Gaddang basket hat is purely aesthetic, as its tiny size does not allow for much storage space.
