Product Description & Reviews
Perfect for the man on the go, this panama hat has a tan hand-made hatband. It's just the hat for the urban guy who know when to relax in the countryside and lay low, and know when to take it up a notch as no-nonsense businessman. Designed to keep you in the cool shade and well protected from the sun whether you are. Men or women could wear it. Hand woven in Ecuador and blocked and trimmed in the USA. Imported. Comfort sweatband inside. The legendary "Panama" hat is made of Toquilla Palm (known in scientific jargon as Caloudovica palmata, grown in Ecuador). The workers also use their nails to extract the fibers from the leaves of dried palm trees. The Panama hat is woven by hand. A hat is woven by one person or standing up, leaning over his work (in Montecristi). When the base is ready, the hat is then handed over to someone else who will finish off the edges, still by hand, and finish it with a woven stitch called 'remate' point. The result is breathtaking: practical, comfortable, stylish, a work of art, a link with the past, a living demonstration of caring craftsman-ship produced by true artisan.
