Panama waver – Sigsig, Ecuador

This picture has been taken in the tiny town of Sigsig in Ecuador. This place is famous for the panama hat that are being made here and exported everywhere in the world. The name of those hat may be confusing as they are in fact made in Ecuador. It comes fom the early days they were exported to US and Europe and were shipped through panama, creating teh confusion in their name and their provenance. Each of those hat is handmade using a weaving technique dating back from pre-Inca time. A long patience work but a lovely result in the end
