The white and black Panama hat for the hot season
With the arrival of the hot season, choose the white and black Panama hat!
Wishing a functional and fresh hat? As always, choose your favourite white and black Panama hat… a classic must have in August. The famous woven straw Panama hat is a symbolo of summer and of the hot season; wide-brimmed or narrow, according to the taste, the white and black Panama hat is the result of a precious straw weave, a complex process and a craft tradition handed down for generations.
Decorated with a ribbon and a bow, produced following the best “Made in Italy” tradition, the Panama hat may require a very long weaving process, especially in high quality hats. The weaving by hand, in fact, can take from 4 to 6 months because of the plot which is very dense. In addition, some models are made only in the early morning hours, when the air is fresh, to prevent fiber breakage.
Sorbatti, faithful to the Panama hat tradition, selects the best raw materials from Ecuador, but creates them and elaborates them according to the Italian taste. In order to maintain the shape, hang the hat or place it in the hatbox. Store in a cool and dry place and avoid contact with water; if the hat gets wet, leave it to rest until it is dry.
