A classic style, crafted from tequilla straw, which is both lightweight and durable in the summer heat.
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.
