Panama hats are visually arresting, and architectural, and essentially beautiful in all stages of production. Here are the hats as we saw them in the workshop today. Enjoy…

    Mind-blowingly beautiful. LOVE these, Dana! In one photo they look good enough to eat.

    Just beautiful. Makes me think about the importance of making things with our hands and eyes. Not just those doing it for recreation, but men and women toiling away to make things like, well, cars, clothes, furniture, and so on. I think we will regret how we lost so many of these activities in our post manufacturing era.

      The Homero Ortega workshop we visited today has been making toquilla straw Panama hats for five generations.
