Still working closely with our makers in Mexico, Ecuador and Thailand May 13 2021

Although there are limitations on our ability to travel currently, we are still able to work closely with and support our makers in Mexico, Ecuador and Thailand. 

Currently we are relatively very fortunate and lucky over here in Australia and we are happy to report that we have been able to develop many new designs with our makers overseas. 

 We are proud to be able to support small, family run, cottage industry and ethical businesses in parts of the world that are not in as fortunate a position as we are in, over here in Australia. 

The above images capture some of the new designs filtering through to our collection. They will be popping up on our website as available for sale over the next few weeks.

Spring is in the air, Panama Hats available October 15 2019

 Buenos días!

Spring is in the air, the days are getting longer and warmer, the plants are growing, the flowers are blossoming, the bees are buzzing. We're all enjoying spending more time outdoors. 

Whether it's walking the dog, pushing the pram, riding a horse, playing golf, visiting a farmers market, pottering in the garden, searching for the elusive Alaskan tern, or just enjoying a cold beverage on a sunny afternoon at your local, you'll need protection from those UV rays.

There is no more stylish and comfortable way than with a Panama Hat

We are proud purveyors of The Montecristi Hat Company's authentic and original Panama Hats.

Our Panama hats are hand woven by skilled artisans in Ecuador as they have been for generations.Made from natural palm fiber, they are light-weight to wear and breathe, so you're always comfortable and cool.

We have a range of styles, colours and sizes. Something to suit everyone.

 Hasta Luego
