Where are Panama hats made?
Actually they're made in Ecuador, but exported to Panama. SId Fleischman author of the Great Horn Spoon In his autobiography said the hats were from Jipijapa so he called it a jipijapa hat because he thought kids those days wouldn't know what a panama hat was like. The Panama hat is made from jipija plant fibre.
