The style of Panamanian hats has become known since the construction of the Panama Canal. It is made by weaving fibers from the leaves of the Carludovica Palmata (Toquilla) plant. The advantages of the hat are the softness of the material, breathability.
Natural straw is usually hand-woven into the shape of a hat blank. It is then shaped, painted, finished with an edge and decorated into the final shape, form.
Straw has excellent thermal insulation properties, so even during bright midday light, you will have your head in the shade.
The straw used in the production of hats is 100% natural. It can be used indefinitely, so natural straw, as a material, can therefore be understood as a natural renewable resource.
Straw hat maintenance and handling
As you probably know, straw is a fragile material, so it is necessary to handle the hat so that the material is not stressed. Each stronger repeated pressing of the hat can lead to breaking of the stalks. Repeated firm compression of the material with the fingers in the front of the hat during putting on or taking off also leads to damage.
Do not expose the straw hat to high humidity. At high humidity, the hat loses its original shape.
Cannot be cleaned.
