Our Santa Barbara hat has a special twist on the classic Panama hat. This hat has two genuine leather straps held by two brass studs. It is hand-woven by indigenous artisans in Ecuador before the brim is steamed.
This hat is made of straw, woven in Ecuador in a completely natural, socially sustainable and environmentally committed process.
Historians can trace the origin of the panama hat from that Valdivian culture parentheses (3500 BC to 500 BC). They used the strong long leaves of the toquilla plant to weave a lightweight fabric that was flexible and durable. They formed hats used to protect themselves from the harsh Ecuadorian sun. These hats were called "tocas".
