THE NATURALLY BOLD TOQUILLA STRAW DESIGN FROM ECUADOR...
Made of 100% Toquilla Straw that is woven by hand in two tones; Half is carefully handwoven in the natural Panama straw color; the other half is woven with individually dyed black straw using a rich charcoal natural dye to create a rich onyx hue. Once the hat is woven and dyed, the crown is then hand-shaped by an artisan with a traditional pinched front design. Final touches are added in the USA by a woman milliner.
Delivering on our sustainable promise, every aspect from start to end of this hat is painstakingly handmade; setting it apart from factory-made hats. Made by human hands that have been practicing the art of weaving straw for generations and LOVE their craft.
