Hello Dear Readers,
I’ve been asked by many of you to post information about the materials used in all the products sold at EcuadorianHands.com, plus info about the process to manufacturing them. I will try to do so, little by little. Please have a little patience
Researching I was able to get an instructional documentary about Panama Hats. However it was too long and had to edited and split it in to 3 parts. Plus, translate it for you my friends. Quite a challenge to test our video editing skills
>>>Beginning in the early to mid-1600′s hat weaving evolved as a cottage industry all along the Ecuadorian coast. Hat weaving and wearing grew steadily in Ecuador through the 17th and 18th centuries. Even then, the best quality hats were being made in what is now the province of Manabí. Watch the videio>>>
I hope you find it attractive and educational.
I’ll see you all in my next post. Aloha,
