The Rachel hat is a wide-brimmed Drop model made of precious Panama Brisa, a special weave formed by simple straw strands that give lightness to the garment. These characteristics allow the product to have a special freshness and a really interesting quality/price ratio. Our Salento artisans process the shapeless semi-finished product from Ecuador with the help of water vapor and heat, making the pull by hand on special wooden forms. Through this processing, the material takes on the desired shape of the crown and brim.

The material from which the famous Panama is made follows several processing steps: it is a weaving of strands of "paja-toquilla," a straw made from the leaves of Carludovica palmata, a plant native to Central and South America. The craftsmanship of these straw strands is done entirely by hand and is an important part of Ecuador's cultural heritage; in fact, these ancient production techniques have been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Depending on the type and degree of weaving imparted to the straw, Panama takes on different designations and qualities, suffice it to say that the finest ones can involve up to 8 months of manual labor by local artisans.

The Rachel hat also has a special feature, it has holes on the circumference of the head positioned immediately above the girdle thanks to which it is very airy, cool and bright. This particular workmanship is called "Semicalado," indicating the braiding castings, that is, spaces left at regular distances to create the openwork effect.

Our Rachel has a head shaped "Drop" i.e., echoing that of a drop, a wide brim and a belt shaded in Bauxite-colored Apulian earth tones with Iconic "Deco-D" piping.
