Our hats are all made the traditional way in Ecuador. They are all hand woven and fairly traded. Our collection of differently styled Panama hats are made from natural "paja toquilla" (toquilla straw) which is far cooler and breathable than synthetic materials or cheap replicas. Although the Panama hats get their names from being worn at the Panama Canal, they are actually originally made in Ecuador.
The sizes are in centimetres and based on the circumference of the head passing across the middle of the forehead. Our smallest is 54cm and the largest 58cm. As all our hats are handmade, the brim size varies slightly but it normally measures between 7-8 cm. Please choose your size when placing your order - we will gladly exchange your hat for a different size if it turns out to be the wrong one.
Tumi was founded in 1978 promoting fair trade crafts and goods with Latin America, working closely with organisations such as Traidcraft and Oxfam Trading. Tumi has worked with our hat makers in Ecuador for many years and ensure that we pay a fair price (set by our partners), good working conditions and a sustainable future for our workers.
