Banbury Open Weave Sun Hat

A beautiful and timeless addition to your summer wardrobe. The Banbury open weave sun hat for women is a flattering style in a natural colour. This luxury sun hat is hand crafted from the finest toquilla straw by artisans in Ecuador and finished in Spain. This Panama hat has an enduring quality with a delightful open weave detailing to the crown and a wide brim to shade the face, neck and shoulders from direct sunlight.

Banbury Open Weave Sun Hat


  • Brim Length: 13 cm
  • Crown Height: 10 cm

Always handle your Panama hat by the brim to avoid distorting the crown. Avoid wearing a Panama in the rain. Dry with a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge if it gets wet. Panama hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.

Spot-clean using a damp cloth and leave to dry at room temperature.


The Banbury open weave sun hat is handwoven from the finest toquilla palm straw in Ecuador by craftspeople, using skills passed down for generations. It is a beautiful natural colour.

Styling & Fitting

With its tall dome-shaped crown and wide brim, the Banbury's versatile look is a perfect match for either an elegant outfit for social occasions or for a swimming costume for a day at the pool. This hat is lightweight and packable face up in a suitcase with items stored in the crown of the hat.

Due to this hat's hand-woven nature, slight variations in size may occur.
