    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.

    Love my new hat!

    Just received my new “Sorento”. It is beautifully made and feather light. It runs a little large, but I added one of the sweat bands and now it is a perfect fit. Love it!

    Beautiful hat

    I've purchased several Panama hats over the years and this is the nicest one I've bought so far. The weave is so nice and feels nice and soft. The darker tan color looks good with the brown leather hat band. I've already received compliments. Looks really sharp.
