We are thrilled to introduce our Tiny Chic Collection of Panama hats, for Tweens & Moms, handmade for Ses Petites Mains, in Ecuador.
In classic & modern shapes, with clean brims and bound brims, there is a shape & color for everyone.
And as we love these hats and their beautiful, rich textures, we were curious as to why, a hat made in Ecuador, is referred to as a "Panama". So with a bit of research, we discovered that the origins of the name "Panama hat" came from when, in 1904, Teddy Roosevelt, President at the time, travelled to Panama to observe the engineering feat of the Panama Canal. He also discovered the smart hats that the workers wore & adopted one himself. Photographer on this trip in his chic topper, the hat becoming commonly referred to as the "Panama hat", its Ecuadorian roots were lost along the way.
History aside, we think that they are the perfect accessory to our Tiny Chic Clothing, in colors & styles your Tween will love. So chic they are, we even added a few for Mom.
History in the making, you'll be, in your new chapeau.
