These Panama hats are made by weavers from the town of Montecristi, in the coast of Ecuador. A tight and dense weave is produced after using thin straws. The result is a hat with a soft texture in a natural straw color.
This is a Montecristi woven hat in a Super Fino quality. The Fedora is perhaps the most famous Panama Hat model. This classic model is creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides.
