Our legendary straw hats are handwoven by local artisans in Cuenca, Ecuador. From jungle plant to finished style, each authentic toquilla hat requires at least a hundred hours of skilled hand work to create. Each hat is blocked, shaped, styled, and finished entirely by hand, one-of-a-kind work of art. This hat is detailed with a hand stitched phrase and it has an internal grossgrain band for added comfort. All styles are unisex.Wear it for a day in the city or pack it for your next sunny vacation. Storage and travel box included.
