Genuine Panama Hat in Fedora shape
Fedora shape genuine ‘Panama Hat’ made in Ecuador from 100% Ecuadorian Paja Torquilla straw. A standard weave that is very flexible but not quite rollable, at least not on a regular basis. It would take being put in a suitcase and reshaped afterwards with no difficulty.
Bleached white straw (achieved through a combination of sun and soak bleaching) with a black band emphasises this classic design. The weave is mostly Brisa or Chessboard square shaped weave. Occasional Cuenca weave or Herringbone appears on the top of the crown and edge of the brim.
