Thursday’s Special:Female

Three women creating Panama hats, a very female occupation:

Making Panama hats in Montecristi, Ecuador

The Panama hat is made (by females) in Montecristi, in Ecuador – not in Panama, as might be imagined.

For more Female, hop over to Paula’s here.

  1. And I was hoping it would be in Panama too!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. This looks quite labor intensive. Lovely hats though!

  3. So that’s how it’s done! I’d quite like one of those 🙂 🙂

  5. Nothing like hard working female hands. This is great, Sue. I was expecting some Cuban curves, but this is educational as well as beautiful. It is a hard work having to lean on their chest to produce one of these.

  6. Poor ladies :/ you’d think someone would invent a more back-friendly method, (or a machine 🙄.

    • Sue

      But they would argue that handmade is the best product – I think there are these hats machine produced, but not such good quality, not as durable….

  7. It was my first thought after looking at the photo…
    Poor back and hands….
    Love your choice for FEMALE!

  8. Aching backs was my first thought too! But great to see something traditional still being made by hand. Lovely shot Sue

  9. Sue I am surprised at the position the ladies work in. That has to be hard on the back over time I would think? Fascinating to see.

  10. I would never have guessed what they were doing. I thought they were making grass skirts or the like with the two legged stand. I will respect my panama hat even more now. I agree the backs must ache.

  11. A beauty. Says a lot about “female”. Are they supporting the weight of that two-legged stand too? I’d want a promotion to boiler.

  12. Really powerful picture. My grandpa comes from Montecristi I’ve seen this live these women are amazing!
