Overview

The business was created in 1988 with the specific goal to prevent the impending extinction of the art of fine hat weaving in Montecristi Panama Hat. From jungle plant to finished style, each hat requires at least a hundred hours of skilled hand work to create. The four factors one would use to “grade” a Montecristi hat are: Weave Fineness (how many rows of weave per inch), Weave Quality (how straight and even are the rows), Straw Color, Blocking. This company imports the hats that have been woven, shaped and finished by hand and offers wholesale and retail sales

The Photo Tour on this web site presents, in text and photos, the most complete, most detailed documentation of the process of making Montecristi hats that can be found anywhere, online or off. The site also provides extensive information about “grading” and pricing Montecristi hats, how to determine your proper size, Panama hats in the movies, famous people who have worn Panama hats, and on and on.
