PANAMA HATS. By working directly with the weavers we provide a more authentic, honest and experiential dimension of the aspirations and real needs of this craftwork. The weaving of these hats is an intricate technique that is passed down from generation to generation, and its production, from sourcing the raw material to weaving the finest natural fiber hats, is completely local and sustainable. Ecuador is the only country in the world where the so famous "panama" hats are woven. Learn more about this fascinating tale of a wrongly named but perfectly hand-made hat from Ecuador!
