Panama hats Montecristi

Panama hats Montecristi

The hat known today as the Panama hat was produced in Ecuador in the seventeenth century and still today all hand woven as you can see in these photos

It get’s it’s name Panama from it being the first place that the Ecuadorians distributed their hats to  Isthmus of Panama and in 1834 the name Panama hats was born before they got distributed throughout Asia USA and now all of Europe
The straw in Panama hats comes from the plaited leaves of the Carludovica Palmata or "paja toquilla", a type of palm indigenous to Ecuador.

 Panama hats are light-colored, lightweight, and breathable, and often worn as accessories to summer-weight suits, such as those made of linen or silk. Beginning around the turn of the 20th century, panamas began to be associated with the seaside and tropical locales
Many companies have jumped on the band wagon in recent years which now sport the hat in their stores direct from Montecristi, but Panama hats are not the only hat produced now, fur felt hats like these



 Which are ever so popular and many more including safari style 
For more information or if you are interested in purchasing any of these hats
