panama hat

Timeless beauty in the hat fashion world. This traditional brimmed hat has been made by the people of Ecuador for hundreds of years and it has gone from being a household item, to a fashion statement and back again within a relatively short space of time. for a hat to be a genuine ‘Panama’, it must come from Ecuador and be made from the right palm species.

  1. So lovely! Interesting to know that it must even be made from the right type of palm!
    I have a desire to have a pith helmet collection one day. I don't have 1 yet though!
