The Cuenca Optimo 18 is our most luxurious folding panama and is woven in small batches from our weavers in Ecuador.
The most classic of all panamas, the Folder Panama (often referred to as Colonial) in a Cuenca/herringbone weave has a distinct crease in the centre, allowing it to roll with maximum ease and retain its shape, so is ideal for frequent travel. This is the most timeless style, being historically associated with likes of Theodore Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. Also available in a standard Cuenca 3/5 weave and a Cuenca 8/10.
Supplied with folding instructions - Travelling tube NOT included.
