Panarea Boater Hat



  • Clear

Panarea is the second smallest of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic island chain north of Sicily, southern Italy. Probably one of the most spectacular islands we’ve ever worn our Nanga Mai linen shirts at. So when we made the women’s version of the men’s Gatsby Boater Hat we had to choose a name that would honour the quality, sustainability and beauty of this summer hat.

The Panarea Boater Hat has a wide rim that surrounds the sturdy low crown, all made of tightly knitted organic straw. Mr. Mai’s attention to detail and to environmental sustainability brought us to recycle the excess material coming from the cutting process of our linen shirts in order to make the typical hat band of boater hats. This way Nanga Mai can reduce wastes, reducing its environmental impact and continue giving good examples and ideas to follow within the eco Fashion Industry.

Visiting Panarea is a must in our opinion. We hope you will do, if you haven’t already. But remember: if you do go, make sure to bring your favorite match of Panarea Boater Hat + Nanga Mai linen shirt with you! You can shop now our summer hat for women in 4 different colours: Amalfi Lemon (yellow), Caprera Coral (magenta), Ionian Wave (light blue) and Carrara White (white).
