The perfect companion and accessory when you go to the beach is a Panama hat! It protects your face from the sun and you will look stylish and sophisticated. It’s a must-have for any beach aficionado. Getting a good one is not easy, often gift shops in hotels sell hats that are meant to be used once, often made of plastic. This is not the case with my hats, Artesano hats, They’re hand made in Ecuador from toquilla palm; they’re not only beautiful but also lightweight, and breathable which is key while being under the sun. You can wear them in the pool, at the beach, for drinsk at the beach and also as accessories to summer-weight suits made of linen or silk. If you are looking to set apart from the rest I will suggest you get an Artesano hat.
Artesano is more than just a beautiful hat with timeless style. It’s a brand that represents a community and lineage of talented hat makers in Ecuador, who delicately weave each of our unique products by hand. Founded by individuals all too aware of the many social and economic challenges these traditional craftspeople face, Artesanov began with a fundamental mission to change the world through delivering elegant craftsmanship and providing an international platform for the cultures that have driven this society for centuries.
Started in Ecuador, Artesano directly supports rural communities and their artisans by encouraging the survival of cultural traditions such as these hand-woven hats. By keeping this tradition alive and well, Artesano not only delivers one-of-a-kind hats with unique designs, but also support artisans.
Artesano brings together the finest quality hats through our ongoing dedication towards maintaining a social mission. We connect with the heart of this hat-making culture by partnering with TECHO and its mission to build thriving, poverty-free communities across 19 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
TECHO is a youth led non-profit organization that seeks to overcome poverty in slums, through the joint work of families living in extreme poverty and youth volunteers. TECHO promotes community development through social inclusion programs as housing, education and more.
Artesano allocates $5 dollar of every hat sold to TECHO in support of creating sustainable communities and overcoming poverty in Ecuador and Latin America.
