    100% straw, I don't need the hat part
    100% straw = 百分之百秸稈(100%秸稈)

    The word "paper" in "paper straw hat" seems to mean "resembling paper in thinness" because most of the paper straw hats in China are made of very fine fiber from rice stalks (稻秸稈), not recycled paper. The so-called "rice paper" or toyo straw, of which Japanese paper straw hats are made, is a paper-like material, not actual paper, either.
    Thus, 100% paper straw = 百分之百紙薄秸稈(or 100%超薄秸稈)
