I am happy to be part of this community of hand-crafters and to have the opportunity to show you what my mother (María Mercedes) has been doing for years – “Sombreros de Paja Toquilla” or panama hats. My name is Edgar, and I am part of an Andean family from Ecuador.

In this shop, you will find panama hats exclusively hand-woven by women like my mother and my two grandmothers. They have a lot of experience on this. The finishing process is hand-made by my sister Elisa and me. I must say that my sister is very creative on designing how a panama hat is going to look like.

Also, in this shop, you will find purses designed and entirely hand-made by Elisa. The purses are mostly made of panama straw.
