Fine Straw Hats (Panama Hats)
Products made out of Toquilla straw

The art of weaving toquilla straw started in the XVI century, when the religious people asked the native artisans from our coastline to make articles that could help protect them and the nobelmen from the ecuatorial sun. These articles were woven with a natural fiber that is processed from a plant, whose unique characteristics such as flexibility, lightness and fineness have allowed to weave, through the centuries, the famous hats made out of toquilla straw, that are known worldwide as PANAMA HATS.

The palm from which the toquilla straw is obtained, grows in the coastal highlands at about 100 to 200 meters above sea level. It is a subtropical and humid region. When the toqulla palm is about two and a half metres high, it is cut and the long process to transfrom the palm into fine and delicate threads, with which the hats, bags and other products are woven, begins.

In Natural Maqui we have different products made out of toquilla straw. The most important ones are the hats and bags. The colors mostly used for hats are natural and dark natural. We can offer for most of the hats, except for the fine Panama Hats, different colors for orders greater than six units. If you order one unit and you want a color that is different than natural or beige we will inform you if we have it in stock.

Available sizes: Small (55-56 cms), Medium (57-58 cms), Large (59,60 cms), XL (61-62 cms)
