The legendary Panama hat was created in 1835. The Amedeo Panama Fine has a 7.5cm wide brim and 3cm grosgrain logo hatband. The production of Borsalino straw hats begins in Ecuador, where the local straw is harvested from the stalks of the toquilla palm tree. The lightweight, elastic, and durable material is then woven by hand, using only the finest and most precious quality straw. The hat is then sent to Italy where it is shaped and finished with the famous logo hatband.
