- The Panama Montecristi Fine Coloniale hat is a refined yet practical piece. Crafted from ‘Toquilla’ straw bleached with natural pigments from Montecristi, Ecuador by artisans in Ecuador, South America, and handmade by our artisans in Alessandria, Italy with a free-size brim (approx. 7cm) that is unique to each individual hat. The Panama Montecristi Fine Coloniale hat is fine-knot weaved by hand, and accented by a bowed grosgrain slim hatband with the Golden Borsalino logo. A Borsalino hat is like a close friend always there when you need it – come rain or shine.
Product careRituals have a purpose. To care for your Borsalino hat, follow these simple step-by-step tips:
To maintain its shape, lift the hat using both the front and back brim with both hands. Do not take the hat from the dome.
Avoid hanging the hat always on the same side.
To remove dust, use a dry soft cloth.
To keep the straw elastic, gently dab with a damp cloth or use some water-cooled spray.
To remove small stains from the straw, apply a few drops of cleansing milk on your fingers and apply light circular motion on the affected area.
To remove stains on the Moroccan, the canneté band that adorns the inside of the hat, rub gently with a white cloth soaked in a small amount of Avio stain remover, avoiding the engraved gold Borsalino logo.
If the hat gets wet, dab it with a soft cloth and let it dry in a ventilated place away from direct light and heat.
If the hat is rollable, do not leave it folded for more than 48 hours.
Keep the hat away from direct light, humidity, and heat.
