We are excited to introduce these gorgeous Panama hats on behalf of a young family from Ecuador, based in New Zealand. Dealing directly with another family in Montecristi, Ecuador, their aim is to encourage a resurgence in popularity of these historic hats and keep the heritage alive for the next generations. We are happy to help. Each hat is individually handmade from start to finish. These hats are works of art. Made from a natural product they will change colour over time and each hat will develop its own unique patina. Finely woven with narrow threads of straw each hat takes approximately one month to make.
