We’ve added rollable, travel-friendly Optimos to our Panama hat collection! Grab yours at PanadorHats.com
We are so pleased with the quality of these hats. They are supple as silk. Light as air. And beautifully woven. Treat yourself to a TRAVEL-FRIENDLY Panama hat.
We discourage rolling any of our fine hats. Rolling a Panama hat shortens the life of a straw hat that’s not designed especially for rolling.
HOWEVER… the crease on these Optimos makes these hats more conducive to rolling. And these hats will be affordable — a nice weave but not a superfine weave — so you won’t have to worry about misshaping a masterfully-woven, $$$$ Panama hat.
We added these hats to our collection, because as much as we cringe at the practice of folding hand-woven hats — we have to admit that rolling a hat is a convenient way to travel.
To protect the lightweight and supple straw, store your hat unrolled, and only fold your hat when necessary. That way, when you arrive at your tropical destination a little jet-lagged and travel-weary yourself, you’ll pull from your suitcase a perfectly-preserved Panama hat. You’ll unfurl and don your hat, and transform into the handsome colonial adventurer, ready to explore exotic lands!
