Hand woven Panama Hat available in fun colors, at affordable prices! Hand woven in Ecuador, with natural sea grass fiber, hand thatched and dyed. Each dye batch will vary from time to time, but I will do my best to keep it as close as possible to the colors shown here. Kangaroo leather sweatband sold in S, M, and L. It is classic and beautiful in "Just Chocolate" Add your favorite band for an outstanding finish! (see hatbands page, bands shown here sold separate.) Panama hats are not from Panama but from primarily Ecuador. The hats are made from panama straw (Latin name Carludovica palmata or local common name paja toquilla), and are hats made from this particular straw. Theodore Roosevelt wore a Panama Hat on the opening of the Panama Canal, and rumor has it, that is where the name came from! Panama hats are blocked in virtually any style. we do a lot of the blocking and shaping ourselves, as western styles are not available in Ecuador. The quality of panama hats can vary significantly regarding grading and pricing. These hats are of wider weave, what would be considered a Grade 5/6.
