Frontera Panama Teardrop

Frontera Panama Teardrop


Wide Open Landscapes Await

The Frontera is a Panama featuring our Paja Verde llano weave that blends functionality with style, designed for those who appreciate quality craftsmanship and see the world as an open landscape to explore. Crafted with a wide brim and a vegetable-tanned leather band, this refined sun hat boasts a natural yet sophisticated aesthetic, making it perfect for outdoor pursuits or leisurely strolls under the sun.

Our commitment to sustainability led us to the cloud forest of the Andes, where we sourced an unused material, a green straw with a fresh scent and soft hue, to weave our Paja Verde hats. As a result, each Frontera hat ages naturally in the sunlight, developing a warm, toasted patina that reflects the individual variations in the shades of the grass.

By sourcing this local fibre, we’ve reduced our carbon and water footprint, thus minimising our environmental impact.

Experience the beauty of craftsmanship and sustainability with the Frontera straw hat—your perfect companion for outdoor adventures.
