Ses Petites Mains, in partnership with Ecuadorian artisans, is thrilled to offer Panama Hats directly from Cuenca, Ecuador.

The Panama straw hat, is right on-trend with what you want to wear today.  Classic styling, comfort and protection from UV Rays make the Panama an easy choice.  Just think how Chic you will look, seeking shade from sun; or kindly hiding your bad-hair day.

We also love the history of the Panama.  It was Teddy Roosevelt who gave wide-spread fame to the Panama hat when he first visited the construction site of the Panama Canal in the early 1900's.  President Roosevelt sported the hat worn by canal workers which quickly became referred to as the “Panama hats” even though the hat's true origin was Ecuadorian. 
So whether you are enjoying an outdoor brunch with friends this summer, or working your next “big infrastructure” project in your backyard, do like Teddy: don one of these marvelous woven hats from the Andes.
