Folder Panama - Cuenca 3/5.

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 finer Cuenca 8/10 weave.

Please note: Sizes 63/64/65 are available but these take approx 1 week to order and are not available on next day delivery. These are £27.00 more expensive due to the additional work the weavers are required to carry out to make these beautiful hats.

Supplied with folding instructions - Travelling tube NOT included. This can be ordered separately.

Available Colours: Ivory, Natural.

Measurements: Brim size (approx) = 6.5cm / 2½ in Crown height (approx) = 11cm / 4¼ in.

Material: Toquilla straw.

    Marvellous - fit / look great and feels so fine. A lovely, quality hat at a good price, from The Panama Hat Company. Having bought one for somebody, I knew they were good; when time came to replace my own I knew where to go. Online ordering process easy and delivery prompt.

    Folder Panama hat - the real thing

    Posted by Rob singleton on 29th Dec 2022

    Couldn’t be happier - the hat is a really authentic piece, just as you would imagine (and hope) Panama would be. Don’t hesitate.

    Panama Hat

    Bought as a birthday present for my husband. He is delighted with the quality, style and fit. He has a lesser panama hat so yours is being saved for "stately" occasions. Thank you and I wish you all success.

    This is the first rolling Panama I’ve owned. I carried it on holiday in a tube, and when I got to my destination it unfolded perfectly.

    Folder Panama hat - Cuenca 3/5 ivory

    Posted by Darren Thompson on 2nd Jul 2022

    After buying the wrong size (my fault) I sized up with a stress free exchange, and got my perfect fit. My hat has perfect imperfections which is expected from something handmade/woven . I love it. Fits great looks great. Service was great. What’s not to like. If in the future I want to upgrade (this is my first Panama) I will definitely buy from here again. Thank you
