A classic Ivory Panama with a choice of 6 different bands sewn to your specifications in our workshop
Measurements: Brim: approx 6cm/ 2.5in. Crown: height approx 9cm/ 3.5in.
Material: Toquilla straw.
+ A great packing tip is to pack the crown tightly with soft items, and then place face down in between some clothes in your suitcase (make a 'well') and then pack some items flat over the brim to keep it from moving in your suitcase. If your hat mis shapes it can be lightly ironed in between a towel with some steam to reshape the brim (only).
