Argentina Fine raffia crochet
The legendary Panama hat was created in 1835. The Argentina Crochet Raffia Fine hat has a 6cm medium brim with 1.5cm contrast bi-color hatband and logo snap button. The production of Borsalino straw hats begins in Ecuador, where the local straw is harvested from the stalks of the toquilla palm tree, boiled and dried under the sun. A process that can take up to six months. The skilled Ecuadorian artisans weave by hand, making extremely fine semi-finished cloches. After careful quality control, the cloches are sent to the Alessandria maison for the continued rigorous and intricate manufacture processes. Then once the ribbon is added, the brim is stiffened before the hat is ready for the final steps: embellishments, stitching, inspection and packaging - all finished by hand. The history of the Panama hat is a captivating one. Wear your Argentina Crochet Raffia Fine hat with a mix of blue and light brown separates. The Argentina Crochet Raffia Fine is also rollable so perfect for travel.
