The Legendary Panama Hat
The Panama Hat, also known as jipijapa, is a type of hat hand-woven with fibers of Carludovica palmata, a dwarf palm.
Produced in Ecuador, the secrets of its manufacture are passed on from generation to generation. Panama hats are currently made mainly by the artisans of Cuenca and Montecristi.
Since the Panama hat is a completely handmade product, each piece is unique and requires special care.
It is named after the city of Panama only because the latter has been for centuries its main commercial venue. Moreover, according to legend, this hat was linked forever with the name Panama when US President Theodore Roosevelt wore it at the inauguration of the Panama Canal in the early ’900. The picture of the event were seen around the world, greatly increasing the reputation of the Panama hat.
