To roll or not to roll...

An eternal debate among Panama Hat fans: Whether their hats can or should be rolled for storage, transportation, etc.

We will get into the details of the techniques at a later post, but for the time being let me just recommend that you only roll high grade hats (i.e. Grade 10 or up) and preferably only Colonial type hats, such as the one pictured below:

Panama Hat World - All about Panama Hats

The Panama Hat has become a mainstream fashion accessory. Male, female, young and young at heart, famous and not so famous: all proudly wear their panama hats.

In 2007 we launched our quest to provide customers around the world with quality fashionable panama hats. In these few years we tried to educate our customers on these fabulous hats, and we also learned a great deal about what they wanted. In this process we found a large amount of information on Panama Hats throughout the web. Some of it was more accurate than other, but it was all scattered, and we could not find a single place that would be a reference to Panama Hat lovers around the world.

This blog hopes to become that reference. We will discuss fashion, styles, trends, history and much more. We will help you visit the towns that give birth to these hats, talk with the artisans, and see how the hats are made.

We also hope to hear from you: Panama Hat fans around the world.

Keep visiting us, and join us in the world of Panama Hats.
