Make and craftsmanship
The Panama hat is technically a type of straw hat made in Ecuador, hence the name “Panama,” which was given to them because they were shipped through the port of Panama. The most common styles are either crushable or rigid. Crushable hats can be rolled up and stuffed into a suitcase; rigid ones must be hand-carried. These hats are usually woven by hand on primitive foot looms (though recently, there have been mechanized looms).
A strip of woven grass is cut away from the block as straw continues to be added until it’s about 18 inches wide. Then throughout its length, small round discs made from palm leaf strips called “tillandsia” or “buli” are attached with tiny “caracas” (bundles of a straw). The weaver uses a crochet needle that has a metal point and an eye. The tillandsia or buli discs are then attached to the needle with string and wrapped around the base of the spike.
The opposite end, which was tucked behind the last tillandsia disc while working on it, is now pulled past to attach it securely. When one row is finished, another circular strip of straw is added until there are 8-12 rows in a typical hat.
The craftsmanship involved in these hats cannot be overstated; they can take four to six months to make. Hats made before 1870 were all woven by hand, but machines have since been introduced into production lines. In 1990
