Handwoven in Ecuador,South America from Toquilla Straw, these hats are a work of art. No two are identical. Imperfections in colour, weave and finish are the result of nature and the artisan's hand and should be cherished rather than criticized. It is what makes your hat unique. These hats have been bleached rather than keeping the natural straw colour. Made from a natural product they will change colour over time and each hat will develop its own unique patina.
The Cigar crown is narrower and more rounded at the top. The San Diego Crown is squarer and wider at the top.
