Safari Wide Brim Panama Hat White with Black Band
Wide Brimmed 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 with bow and a wider brim emphasises this hat so that it is perfect in the bright sunlight. The tear-drop crown gives it a bit more strength. The weave is mostly Cuenca or herringbone shaped weave. This is to give the brim a bit of stiffness too making it more robust rather than a floppy wide brim. As a result, it is not a foldable or rollable type of Panama. You could put it in a suit case though with something in the crown to hold it shape and it will be fine.
