Fairtrade, Genuine Panama Hats with the styling of a classic fedora. Handwoven with 100% natural, fine toquilla straws.
Made in Cuenca, Ecuador, by Indigenous female artisans who are highly skilled in the ancient art of hat weaving. They craft each piece by hand with locally sourced toquilla straws. These intricate weaving techniques were passed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years.
Our Authentic Panama Hats provide rural Ecuadorian women with financial independence and a unique chance to keep their cultural heritage alive.
Because they are made with natural fibres, our Hats are sustainable, breathable, lightweight and super comfortable. Perfect for those obsessed by form, function, positive social impact and low environmental cost.
Our Original Panama Hats collection is unisex. All models are available in small, medium and large sizes.
