The Santa Barbara Panama keeps things on the smart side of casual on hot summer days. Made from toquilla palm, this hat is hand-blocked with a tear-drop crown and finished with a tobacco-brown suede band.
Each piece is unique, and is hand-woven from a quality, high-grade toquila palm straw by expert craftspeople in Ecuador.
The hat features a supple aniline leather sweatband and inside, the pinch is sealed with a clear silicon, ensuring your hat retains its shape for many years of comfortable wear.
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.
How to clean your Panama
If your Panama hat becomes dirty, use steam from a household kettle and brush gently with a pure bristle brush to help remove dust and dirt. Do not brush or rub too hard, which may damage the weave. For minor marks, use a clean pencil rubber.
