Genuine Panama Hat in Fedora shape
Fedora shape genuine ‘Panama Hat’ made in Ecuador from 100% Ecuadorian Paja Torquilla straw.
Panama Hats are actually Ecuadorian Hats as they are also known, as they are a traditional hat made from the leaves of the Torquilla Palm that grows along the Ecuadorian coast. The leaves are sun dried and hand woven. They are light, easy to wear and highly breathable.
They were made famous during the 1800s as the then cottage industry picked up and they started being shipped from Panama to all over the world, hence the name.
