About Panama Hats
Panama hats are woven from the Carloduvica palmate plant from Ecuador. Panama was the distribution center for these hats thus the name even though they were made in Ecuador, Peru, Columbia, Venezuela, and Guyana.
About Valerie Modes
Valerie Modes was a major milliner from the 1940s to the 1960s. Early labels had an accent over the E in the word Mode which may mean hats were manufactured in France. Later hats don’t have the accent and have a union label indicating USA manufacture.
NOT SHIPPABLE TO ITALY due to Italian customs prohibition.
