    Superfino Montecristi panama

    2 items left

    For those who want the best, look no further than the Superfino Montecristi Panama hat. Handcrafted by artisans in the village of Montecristi in Ecuador, the superfino Panama hat takes up to six months to weave and is renowned for its feather-light, silky texture. The black band and bow is a nod to the tradition of mourning bands that were worn on fino panama hats in the year of Prince Albert's death.

    The Superfino Montecristi panama hat comes with a complimentary Lock white hat box.

    Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush or clean pencil rubber will help remove dust and dirt. Alternatively, use a soft nailbrush and a little soapy water. Avoid wearing a Montecristi Panama in the rain. If it gets wet, dry using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge. Montecristi Panamas hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
