Contrary to popular belief, Panama Hats actually come from Ecuador. Handmade from “paja toquilla” a natural fiber cultivated in the Andes, these hats are woven by hand by communities in the province of Azuay. Weaving these hats is a skill passed down from generation to generation. We collaborate with these communities to bring hats of the best quality. A timeless accessory and fashion staple throughout the world.
