Our Mission: Preserving the art of weaving
This half-a-millenia old art form is in danger. With the boom of the internet, Asia, Mexico, and other countries began selling non-authentic machine-made hats labeled as Panama hats while distribution companies also begin exploiting weavers by paying less per hat to compete. This has destroyed any incentive for future generations to take up the art of weaving.
We wanted to be different. We decided to support weavers by paying them what is necessary for them to thrive and inspire others to carry on this tradition.
These are not just hats. These are works of art.
