Montecristi Panama Hats

We specialize in exporting Montecristi Panama hats around the world. These Panama hats are made by master weavers from the town of Montecristi, in the coast of Ecuador.  Very thin straw is used to obtain a sharp and tight weave that produces the finest straw hat in the world! Depending on the fineness of the weave a Montecristi hat can take several two months to weave. The result is a hat with a soft texture and an elegant natural straw color.

Panama Hats Vendor

Genuine Panama Hats are manufactured exclusively in Ecuador. They acquired their name after being commercialized in Panama during the construction of the canal in the early 1900’s.

The Panama Hat originates from the toquilla palm leaf that grows in the warm coastal lowlands of Ecuador.  The palms are shredded into fiber straws, sun dried, woven by hand, trimmed and shaped into what are perhaps the finest hat made in the world!
