Navigator - Standard Brisa Weave
£75.00
The Navigator is a classic fedora style panama hat woven in natural straw in a standard grade weave, which is great for days out or wearing in the garden. It's a timeless classic and this makes it the perfect sun hat for men and women.

Known as the "Panama" hat, but it really should be called the Ecuadorian hat as it they are hand-woven by our talented weavers in Ecuador, where genuine Panama hats originate.

Many other retailers will sell this grade of hat as a rollable hat, but we do not recommend that you do this. The fibres are not fine enough to remain flexible with repeated use. The brim is approximately 6-7cm wide, all our hats are handmade so this can vary slightly from hat to hat, if you'd like a hat with a specific brim size then please get in touch.

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.
