This beauty is a Shantung Panama straw with a
pinch front vented crown and a leather band with rivets, turquoise conchos
and a large center concho with a beautiful flower design on silver with a
turquoise center. The brim is patterned with a design of brown, white and
turquoise and is whip-stitched all the way around the edge. All hats have a
heavy wire brim and a comfort sweatband and are durable, water-resistant
and easy to clean.
Shantung straw is a man-made high performance yarn that is great for making hats.
It has a high tear strength and is considered to be the strongest of all natural fibers
and is lightweight, durable and beautiful.
