Women's straw hats are made from various materials such as Panama, raffia, coberg, twisted grasses, vegetable fibers, shantung and Milan. These materials can be found in lady's church hats, big sun hats, dress hats, millinery and cowboy hats. Also, more Panama hats can be found at a separate page of our web site. These straw materials come from various parts of the world including Ecuador, Madagascar, China and Italy. The hoods, or unblocked straw bodies, are blocked into finished hats from factories that contract with The Village Hat Shop. You'll also find styles from Pantropic, Scala, Betmar, and other straw millinery brands. We evaluate literally thousands of straw hats each year. What you see here is the result of our distilling process. We have done the first phase of your shopping. We're confident that you'll be able to choose from among our many dozen choices and find the your right hat. Have fun scrolling through this selection, and stay covered this spring and summer.
NOTE: THE HAT BUSINESS IS SEASONAL. THE VILLAGE HAT SHOP WILL HAVE LARGER INVENTORIES AND A BETTER SELECTION OF STRAW HATS IN THE SPRING/SUMMER SEASON when women's straw hats and dress hats are most popular.
