Description

What is a Panama Hat?
Panama hats are hand-woven hats that were made popular on the mid-nineteenth century and were given the name of “Panama Hats” thanks to the President Theodore Roosevelt who visited Panama in 1904 and was photographed wearing this unique hat. From that day on people got to know this piece of art as a Panama Hat.

How is it made?
Each hat is hand-woven from toquilla straw and it can take from 5 to 10 days to complete this process depending on the size of the hat and its quality.
After the weaving process is complete the hat gets put into different molds depending on the different styles and shapes the designer wants to achieve.
To complete the weaving process at the end comes a procedure called tying off which consists of interweaving to finish the weaving process.
The next stage in the creation of the hat is tightening the tied-off fibers to keep the weave from getting undone. Then the hat gets washed, whitened or dyed and dried on the sun until its ready for the next stage, reshaping.
In this stage the hat gets reshaped to achieve the desired style and from there it gets its final accessories sewed to the hat to complete the one of a kind piece of art.
At the end a final quality inspection gets completed and the seal of approval and tag gets attached to the hat.
The entire process can take anywhere from 5 to 15 days.

Each hat is unique, you can find the same model but the hat pattern itself is one of the kind as it is hand-woven by different people.

Sizes
Small is approx. 55-56 cm
Medium is approx. 57-58 cm
Large is approx. 59-60 cm
Brim is approx 6.35 cm

Colour
It comes with black ribbon.
