THE MAKING OF A PANAMA HAT

The selection of prestigious material is the key. The size and delicacy of the straw strands is what defines the quality of a panama hat. Once the material has been chosen, next the hat is woven through the harmonious movements of expert hands. The final result is a “Campana di Paja Toquilla”, light and splendid.

There are different types of Panama Montecristi, from the “Classic” to the “Extrafine”; made by hand, the artisans themselves guarantee the quality of the product. The creation of the “Extrafine”, for instance, needs various months of work.
