Paper Hats....Cafe Du Monde

A recent engagement took me to New Orleans, where I was intrigued by the uniforms of the wait staff at Cafe Du Monde--all the variations on the theme of white shirt and black bow tie, the flourish of pink at the waist (a Handi Wipe for cleaning tables, it seems) and those marvelous paper hats.

These origami-like toppers have inspired me to launch an investigation into the varieties and histories of the paper hat. Do you know of any paper-hat-wearing people in Columbia? If so, please direct me to them, in order that I might add them to my research.
