Handwoven in Ecuador,South America from Toquilla Straw which is native to South America, 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. Made from a natural product they will change colour over time and each hat will develop its own unique patina.
