This is the sando gasa I bought several years ago from Bokunan-do. You can see that it has a definite radial structure. The original atadamai was also straw. (I cannot be certain if it is rice straw or bamboo. The site refers to them as "rush hats.") I replaced it last summer with the fabric pad and rolled fabric atadamai last summer after a blow-out. What you can't see is that there is a flat plastic ring attached to the center of the hat. That's what I've sewn the harness to.
If you manage to come up with a fabrication method, I do hope you'll share!
