Wanderwell Fine Crochet Panama

Wanderwell Fine Crochet Panama



Our pursuit of excellence has led to the creation of the Wanderwell Panama hat, a piece so finely crocheted that it serves not only as a testament to the remarkable skills of our weavers, with whom we have collaborated for over 30 years, but also stands as a stunning example of craftsmanship. Our goal was to craft a hat that provides significant benefits to its owner, marrying practicality for travel with the beauty and artistry of its design.

Of all the weaves we produce, the crochet weave most closely resembles a textile, endowing the hat with exceptional flexibility, durability, ventilation, and lightness. However, we always recommend handling your hat with care to maintain their longevity. The fineness of the weave is achieved through assiduous attention to detail, by first hand-splitting the toquilla fibres into finer and finer threads, then hand-crocheting them into an elegant, lacy-feeling hat. We then adorned it with a bespoke braid, meticulously crafted by expert heritage weavers from Derbyshire, and finished it with an Epsom textured leather tab and our gold logo pin, adding a touch of luxury and identity to this exquisite piece. Embrace the Wanderwell, and let it accompany you on your travels, enhancing every experience with its unparalleled craftsmanship and timeless design.

The “paja toquilla” fibre used in our hat production is organically grown and sustainably harvested from a community owned plantation. This ecological cultivation provides income to the community whilst encouraging biodiversity and preserving the environment for future generations.
