Our Panama Straw Hats are crafted from authentic Ecuadorian toquilla straw, which is sourced from toquilla trees (like a palm tree), native to South America. Coastal farmers cultivate the trees and harvest the stems. The palm cuttings are shredded down to fine straw fibers, cleaned and sun-dried, then skilled weavers in Ecuador carefully hand weave the straw into a traditional herringbone pattern, in the form of a Panama hood. The shaped Panama hoods are then sent from Ecuador to our milliners here in New Zealand, who then hand block, shape and trim each one into our final design. We favor Panama straw because it is breathable, lightweight and provides natural UV protection.
