A neat, little beret crafted from peddle straw and blocked to give a domed effect. The hat looks très chic worn towards the back of the head or can also be worn on the side and secured with a hair elastic.
Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush or clean pencil rubber will help remove dust and dirt. Alternatively, use a soft nailbrush and a little soapy water.
Avoid wearing a Panama or straw hat in the rain. If it gets wet, dry using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge.
Panama and straw hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
