Unlike most Panama Hats sold around the world which pass through organisations or middlemen. Kiraku’s Panamas are hand woven for us by one of the best Eco, ethical, sustainable hat weaving cooperatives in Ecuador. Where every process:- weaving, dyeing, blocking, finishing is all done by the one cooperative in house. Kiraku’s Atelier has worked in a direct trade way with all our artisans, Craftsmen & organisation since 1977. Not just to ensure the quality of all our products are high & genuine but that everything Kiraku actually pays for does actually go directly to the people who make them & no one else.
