Product Description

These great hats are exactly the same as out top seller traditional Panama hat. The only difference is it's brown band.

Our genuine Panama hat is hand woven and fairly traded in Ecuador. Made from natural "iraca" palm fibre which is far cooler and breathable than synthetic materials or cheap replicas.

Panama hats are made and worn all over Latin America, but the traditional Panama hat which has taken its name from the Panama canal, are made in Ecuador. Their flexibility and the fact that you can fold or roll them for traveling, makes them unique.

The sizes are in centimeters and based on the circumference of the head passing across the middle of the forehead. Our smallest is 54cm and the largest 62cm. As all our hats are handmade, the brim size varies slightly but it normally measures between 6-7.5cm. 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.

You may also wish to consider our basic Tumi cardboard Panama travel tube or our Tumi balsa wood Panama travel box. If so, just search for them on Amazon.

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.

Please note that your hat will not be posted rolled up/folded. It will instead be posted in a box large enough to accommodate it without it being folded. The reason for this is that you should wear a Panama Hat for a few days/week before first rolling it. This allows the hat to adapt to the shape of your head and develop flexibility. Failure to do so will result in damage to the hat and shorten its lifespan.

Tumi provide an excellent service and the Panama hat they make is first rate. Sizes are reasonably accurate and the finish to the product is excellent. This fedora style of Panama hat is not best suited to being rolled up, but when I recently crushed mine in the boot of the car it was returned to normal by a bit of steam and stretch. Love it.

I have been looking for a quality sun hat for some time and am delighted to have received this traditional Panama. The quality is apparent and the packaging ensured that it arrived safely.

I had a "fake" panama last year, cost about 10.00 pounds. It was OK until the weather warmed up then it got sweaty.
Thought I'd go for it this time and fork out some decent money.
It's an excellent product and does exactly what ................
Very Pleased!

Also bought a tube to pack it in but hat is very stiff and has split a fraction at the crown when rolled and placed in suitcase for 20 hours travelling. Having spent this much it's probably worth spending a bit more but I wanted a brown band.....vanity eh!

Excellent value, will be great for travelling. Good service from supplier, just need the tube to keep it together.. No problem with brown band, marks it distinctive.
