Liu Derun and Li Yan Derun (China) ~ There exists in China, a heart-warming and abiding custom. When a child was expected in the family, the mother or a close relative would personally design, sew and stitch an adorable and impressive-looking Tiger Head Hat. They hoped that by wearing the hat, the child would be protected from evil and disease. The hat also symbolizes continuity and prosperity.
