So steeped in the culture of Ecuador are Panama hats that UNESCO has added the weaving of the hats onto its Intangible Cultural Heritage List. Legend has it, the wearing of Panama hats began with peoples living in coastal provinces and a town called Montecristi. When you hear about a Montecristi Panama hat, you are listening to people talk about a historic type of millinery.
Much later in its history, the Panama hat was a favorite adornment among Americans traveling through the Panama Canal and up toward California to make their fortunes during the Gold Rush. Because many travelers first saw the hats during their voyage across Panama, and because Theodore Roosevelt was photographed wearing a Panama hat while observing the Panama Canal, the name stuck despite their actual country of origin. The next time someone asks you which country makes Panama hats you can smile and reply calmly, “Ecuador.”
