The sombrero pinta’o museum in my site may be little but it’s worth a visit! There’s an artisan there every day making the sombreros so you can get a first hand look at what the process is like.  Sombreros are made by weaving around the wooden form you can see in the picture above. And, the sombreros and headbands (and all of the other amazing things they make with this natural fiber) are available for purchase if you want to take a little of Panama home with you!

    • They’re pretty breathable in my opinion! They can be cheap if you get a more thickly woven one or upwards of $1,000 if you get a super fine one which I imagine would be less breathable lol
