Panames & Co
Panames & Co was founded by a French couple, France and Cedric. On their trip to Ecuador in 2012, they visited the country's most renowned hat factory, Homera Ortega. In fact, the Panama Hat is from Ecuador originally, and not from the country of Panama as many may think. The couple decide to update the famous hat by offering different style ribbons and other fashionable twists on the classic. The respective experiences of France in fashion and Cedric in poject management have enabled the couple to create the Panames & Co brand.
