What Makes it a Panama Hat?Some hats are referred to as "Panama" because they have the distinctive shape that is normally associated with them. However, the real beauty is in the material they are woven from: fine toquilla straw. It comes in many grades, the finer ones being the softest and most luxurious. If a hat is not woven from toquilla palm then it is not a true Panama. We have women's Panama hats in both 100% authentic and suitably similar fibers.
