The Ventnor Cuenca Ultra-fine Panama hat can take up to six months to weave by hand in Montecristi, Ecuador. Artisans use skills passed down for generations to create luxury Panama hats. Weavers of the finest toquilla palm straw work at night and in the earliest hours of the morning, when the temperature is cooler, and the humidity is highest.
The Cuenca is an extra-fine weave and has a silky texture, a natural golden colour, and is extremely lightweight. Complement your spring and summer attire with a Panama, finished with a brown band, that has all the signature features of Lock & Co.; quality, durability and craftsmanship.
Hatter's Tip: Wear it with the brim snapped down at the front and never pinch the crown. Be very gentle with it; Regular steams are highly recommended.
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.
Every Lock & Co. hat purchased is carefully and expertly hand-prepared in our London shop by one of our Hatters, before being whisked out of our famous green front door.
