Created in Ecuador

We are a family business based in the heart of the Andes in Ecuador, South America. Our work with local artisans has shown us a lifestyle that is abundant by nature and is based in creativity, resourcefulness, passion, heritage, expansion among the main values that form our community. Each of our hats is delicately woven by hand with soft flexible strands of sustainably harvested natural straw. This kind of hats is misleadingly known as Panama-hat, but the secret behind it is that the finest hand-woven straw hats can only be found in Ecuador.

Built on tradition

From hats that can take a couple days to weave, to hats that take almost a year to finish, each one is made by hand and by one artisan, only using 8 pieces of straw to start with and finishing with hundreds, some thousands, of the finest natural fiber threads. At METIER we aim to provoke a fresh and emotional new vision of the world of luxury. Handmade, natural, one-of-a-kind, good for you, good for the people, good for the environment - this is how we choose to redefine luxury.
