CLASSIC PANAMA HAT

A Fashion Icon, the Panama Hat


At the turn of the century, the men whose strength and fortitude were tested under

the tropical sun, sliced a continent in two, using as protection the elegant fiber hats

from Ecuador. In doing so, inadvertently "christened" them with a name which belies

their true origin. To Ecuador, this has been a mixed blessing. Without a doubt, the canal

was responsible for Panama's great popularity in the early part of the century, but in

that, it created confusion concerning its origin. Paja Toquilla, indigenous to the coastal

regions of Ecuador, is the plant from which Panamas are woven. Their history can be

traced as far back as the Incas. Such hats were first observed in the 16th century.

In 1855, a Frenchman living in Ecuador took some to the World Exposition in Paris.

The finest were presented to the great French ruler, Napoleon III. From that time on,

the "toquilla" has reigned supreme over the crowned heads of Europe. In England,

much encouraged by royal patronage, the Panama quickly attained the enviable position

as the most fashionable summer hat: a position it has retained to the present day. It was

a craze that was given a further boost in 1906, when President Theodore Roosevelt was photographed wearing one when viewing the Panama Canal under construction.
