The best Panama Hats in Massachusetts & New England!


The Panama Hat

Panama Hats are a popular type of hat made in Ecuador down in South America. This product is hand-woven by local families of artisans who have been at this job for many years and have mastered the art. The main Ecuadorian towns where Panama Hats are made are Montecristi and Cuenca. Panama Hats are known for their fine quality and prestige as a unique product made in Ecuador from "toquilla" straw. In fact, in 2012 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (known as UNESCO) added the Panama Hat to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity because of its representation of the traditions and history of local Ecuadorian cultures. The hats are very frequently exported to countries such as the United States, France, Germany, Canada and the UK. In the US, there are some Panama Hats stores in Florida and California.
