Classic Fedora - Fine Brisa Weave - Rollable
£126.00
The Pachacuti Classic Fedora in the fine brisa weave has been our most popular selling Panama hat for over 20 years and is perfect for those seeking a foldable Panama hat, or rather, described more accurately - a rollable hat. This perennial favourite summer hat is the true "Panama" and will bring both elegance and comfort to your summer wardrobe.

Renowned for its lightweight and flexible fibres, this packable hat is handwoven by our skilled fair trade producers from the fibres of the Carludovica Palmata, grown near the coast of Ecuador. The fine brisa weave is a lightweight, diamond weave, slightly less durable than our llano weave but is a fantastic, quality rollable hat for the price. For ease of travel you can also purchase a hat tube for packing your genuine panama hat in your suitcase.

This fedora shape is popular with both men and women, with its pinched sides and a lengthwise crease down the crown it suits most who wear it. Fedora brims are on average 7cm in width and are generally shaped by the wearer to be slightly downward in the front and with slight curl upwards in the back.

These sun hats are trimmed with petersham ribbon and are available with a choice of black, navy, champagne or khaki hat bands. Additional colour choices are available, we may also have larger or smaller hats than the sizes listed here. Do get in touch if you are looking for a size not listed. Phone our shop for more details- +44 1335 300 003 or email: hats@panamas.co.uk

For hat band colours other than black, please allow an additional 2-3 days for delivery due to each hat band being customly sewn by our milliner. Hats with coloured bands cannot be guranteed for next day delivery.

Calculating Your Hat Size.

To take a measurement position a cloth tape measure so that it rests just above the brow at the front of the head and resting approximately 1 cm about the top of the ears at the side. Pull the tape so that is taut but not too tight and take a measurement. Hats are sized to the nearest whole centimeter so it is advisable to size up if your head falls between two measurements.

Fair Trade

Pachacuti works directly with our artisans in every step of the process, weaving, dyeing, blocking, finishing, to ensure that as much of the final value as possible remains in their hands.

Pachacuti pays a fair price which is monitored through weaver interviews to ascertain the local cost of living and by measuring the price we pay against the government’s cañasta básica vital, the monthly market price of meeting basic needs for a family of 4.We provide ongoing training and investment, not just in design development and skills, but in self-esteem, human relations, costing of products and overheads, and health and safety.

We have piloted projects which demonstrate our commitment to working fairly with our weavers, including becoming the first company in the world to be Fair Trade Certified under the Sustainable Fair Trade Management System in 2009 and piloting the Fair Trade Guarantee System in 2011, become the first fashion brand in the world to receive the new label. Our work on the 3 year EU Geo Fair Trade project involved the collection and tracking of 68 social, economic and environmental indicators.
