Brent Black, renowned authority and preeminent purveyor of handwoven straw hats, is now offering the world’s finest Montecristi Panama for $100,000.

Simply referred to as “The Hat”, this one has been exquisitely woven from fine toquilla straw that too only in Ecuador.

The Hat was commissioned by Black from the king of the master weavers Simón Espinal, who lives in the village of Píle in Montecristi Canton.

It took him five full months to complete.

After Espinal completed the weaving, five other artisans spent several more weeks preparing and finishing The Hat.

If that’s too expensive, you can always settle for their $25,000 straw hat!
