    THE ART OF WEAVING

    The art of weaving whether it's a tapestry or an article of clothing represents an important livelihood for many men and women in Ecuador. In particular, the small village of Montecristi or Cuenca is internationally renowned for the high quality of its weaving of Panama Hats. And before you think this is a typo, believe it or not, Panama hats have always come from Ecuador, not Panama!

    Panama hats are made from toquilla straw, hand-split into strands not much thicker than thread and woven so finely, at first a Panama hat appears to be made from linen. Each Panama hat is woven by a single artisan, hand-blocked, and takes months to complete.

    PRODUCT CARE
    Rituals have a purpose. To care for your Ultrafino hat, follow these simple step-by-step tips:

    1. To maintain its shape, lift the hat using both the front and back brim with both hands. Do not take the hat from the dome.

    2. Avoid hanging the hat always on the same side.

    3. To remove dust, keep the straw elastic or remove small stains from the straw, apply PAUL LASHTON STRAW HAT CLEANING KIT on the affected area. Avoiding the engraved gold Ultrafino logo.

    4. If the hat gets wet, dab it with a soft cloth and let it dry in a ventilated place away from direct light and heat, for better protection of your Panama hat add PAUL LASHTON STRAW HAT REPELLENT KIT.

    5. If the hat is rollable, do not leave it folded for more than 48 hours. Keep the hat away from direct light, humidity, and heat.

    6. If you need to re-shape or to preserve the shape of the Panama straw hat use PAUL LASHTON PREMIUM STRAW HAT STIFFENER KIT.

    * Ultrafino does not assume responsibility for damage to the product resulting from alternative use or care that is not compliant with the instructions provided here.

      Well-received gift

      The Foldable Fedora was given as a present and, although it hasn’t yet been folded for an upcoming trip, it has been worn around town. It is well-crafted, durable and effective at warding off the desert sun. Pleased with this purchase.

      Foldable Fedora Does What It Should Do - FOLD

      Prior to my purchase of this foldable Panama hat, I bought one from a competitor. Cheaply made and that was immediately apparent. Having been a customer of Ultrafino before I knew I couldn’t go wrong. The hat is well constructed and one can roll it up. Cool. The only constructive criticism is, the hat was advertised with a small box to place the rolled up hat. That did not come with my order. Otherwise, can’t wait to wear the hat in my travel.
