Handwoven in Ecuador. Hand-finished in the US. Measurements are approximate, this is a handwoven product and actual measurement may slightly vary.

If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. A looser fit is recommended as you can use hat sizing reducer tape to help nail the perfect fit.

Included with this hat:

1 Paul Lashton Protect & Repair Crown Insert with Adhesive Backing

  • The easiest way to protect your prized hat. If you have owned a straw hat for long enough, you've probably discovered that over time the crown of the hat can begin to crack. This can be from frequent pinching of the crown (which you shouldn't do) or from simple wear and tear. This insert is designed to protect and prevent cracking of the crown. Simply peel and stick onto the inner crown of your hat. Made with an adhesive backing that’s been formulated to last a long time and not leave behind any adhesive if chosen to remove.

2 Hat Size Reducer Strips 4”

  • Have a hat that fits a little too loose on your head? Use a size reducer strip to easily give your hat a more snug and perfect fit! Just peel the back from the adhesive and stick it behind the sweatband of the hat. With the use of two strips, your hat can be reduced to about 1/2 of a size!


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 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.

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.

    Nice hat, sizing slightly off

    Very nice looking hat but size runs a little on the large side I was concerned that the correct size might be a little small, but it was a shade to big. I just placed a piece of felt under the inside band and the fit was fine.

    Great quality ,look and fit

    Very impressed with the quality, looks and fit. Have received several comments on the hat. Ordered the water repellant kit as it is likely to get got in rain occasionally.
    Staff was very helpful is selecting right style and fit.
