Panama Hat

Panama hats, known for their classic style and cooling properties, are more than just a fashion statement; they are a testament to traditional craftsmanship and elegance. At 123 Safety Gear, we take pride in offering a collection of authentic Panama hats that combine style, comfort, and durability, perfect for any sunny day.

What Are Panama Hats Made Of?

Panama hats are traditionally made from the plaited leaves of the toquilla straw plant, native to the coastal regions of Ecuador. Despite their name, Panama hats are indeed Ecuadorian in origin. The primary material attributes are:

  • Toquilla Straw: This natural fiber is renowned for its flexibility and durability, making it ideal for weaving.
  • Lightweight and Breathable: The tight weave of the straw allows air to circulate, keeping the head cool under the hot sun while providing ample sun protection.
