Welcome to Ultrafino
Formerly called Ultrafinopanamahat.com, Ultrafino was founded in 2003 with a mission to share the artistic marvels of the Ecuadorian handwoven Panama Hat. True to our name, we take pride in selling handmade headwear of the finest quality. All of our Panama hats are handwoven in Ecuador by master artisans and finished by us in Seattle, Washington. These hats are works of art that will bring many years of wearing pleasure. If you would like to view our hats in person, please visit our showroom in Lynnwood, WA. Directions are on our contact page.
Panama hats are special due to their construction and the materials involved. Your Panama hat was woven together with straw, and if it’s a genuine Panama hat, it was made from toquilla straw using the traditional Ecuadorian weaving process. This process takes a lot of time and precision, making your Panama hat cost more than its disingenuous counterpart. Needless to say, each Panama hat is a unique work of art which means you need to take care of it properly in order to maintain it.
