Contrary to popular belief, the Panama hat is not made in Panama, it is ctually made in Ecuador.  The hat became popular when  U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Panama Canal.  He was photographed wearing a “Panama” hat, which increased its popularity.

UQSHA was founded in Cuenca, Ecuador, the largest manufacturer of the Panama hat.  Uqsha means “straw” In Quechua, the indigenous language of Ecuador.  To get the desired quality in our hat deserves, a minimum of 96 hours should be spent hand crafting this beautiful wearable art.

UQSHA has put a modern stylish twist on the famous Panama hat by using beautiful and unique variations of the traditional Panama hat without losing the original elegant look.  This is why you will immediately notice the difference in style, design, and quality in an UQSHA Genuine Panama hat over other manufacturers.
