Toquilla straw is the raw material par excellence for weaving fine, high-quality hats of the Montecristi panama type. At Pile, artisans have not only a monopoly on the finest hats in the world, we also treasure an incredible added value. We grow and process our Toquilla straw ourselves. For this reason we are able to push the potential of this fiber to the limit and get straws that are more like threads than brittle blades. The result is a fine hat that seems to be made of a textile like linen, that is what makes us unique.
