All our hats are handmade in Ecuador, meaning they are genuine Paja Toquilla straw hats, the weaving process of which has been designated as an “Intangible Cultural Heritage” item by UNESCO.  

Our experienced team in Bristol, England then apply the same craftsmanship, principles and standards when finishing and trimming our Panamas.

At least 5% of our profits are donated to good causes, supporting projects in Ecuador and beyond. Visit our "who we support" page to learn more.
