3.- Unique fabric

In Fernández y ROCHE we guarantee the quality of the materials of the Panama, especially in what concerns the fabric.

The capelins or bases on which the Panama is based can only be manufactured in Ecuador, so they come directly from artisan workshops in that country. The realization of these bases constitutes a handmade and generational work, declared World Heritage of the Humanity in the year 2012 by the UNESCO.

And how do you know if the fabric is the right one and, therefore, if it is a real Panama? This hat has certain characteristics that make it unmistakable when it comes to distinguishing a real one from one that is not.

  1. By the smell: if it does not smell of anything it is obvious, it’s fake. Panama hats, being made of straw, must have a characteristic smell.
  2. By the touch: unmistakably, a true Panama hat will have a silky touch.
  3. By the weaving: turning the hat over you will be able to see the rings that have been formed as the hat is woven. The more rings it has and the less holes between the weave, the better the quality of the Panama hat.

4.- Summer and… spring!

The use of Panama is not only reduced to the summer months. Spring is also a favorable season to wear this type of hat due to the heat and high temperatures it can reach. As long as the sun disturbs, always carry your panama with you.
