Sombrero de paja toquilla, also known as the Panama hat, is a delicately woven hat made out of “toquilla” straw. The Panama hat is native to Ecuador and has been passed down for many generations. The “toquilla” palm grows along Ecuador’s Pacific Coast and has been used by artisans for many years. Flow Handmade revolutionizes the use and meaning of the “toquilla” palm with the creation of our custom, hand-crafted hats and bags. Our vision is to combine fashion and flow with community and tradition. With the ability to customize our products with our hand-designed scarfs, women and men will feel empowered to incorporate their own flow into their wardrobe staples.
