  • The traditional weaving began with a pre-.colombian coastal ethnic groups Manteño who used a primitive “head protection, called by the Spanish ‘toque’, the origin of the name of paja toquilla, name used by the Spanish in Europe to spread the hats woven in Montecristi..

  • Only in 1835 began the serious exportation of the hats from Montecristi to Panama, and from Panama to Europe and North America, which explains how this Ecuadorian product came to be incorrectly known as Panama Hats.

  • The popularity of the Panama hat started in the 20th century when a photograph of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt appeared in the world press wearing a hat.

  • In 1930, it was Ecuador's number-one export, and all over the world a Panama Hat came to be considered a symbol of style and elegance.

DENSITY OF WEAVE. The “Montecristi Cuenta,” is a not official measure and consists of counting the numbers of straw fibers going vertically and horizontally, and multiply the two numbers together.

A hat with a “cuenta” of 900 is a treasure.

Section iii specific problems of denomination of origin
SECTION III following the rules in force and according with the requirements of the National and Andean Regulations,such as SPECIFIC PROBLEMS OFDENOMINATION OF ORIGIN

  • Opposition

  • Weak Association

  • No Technical Standards

  • Economic Interest


Oppositions
OPPOSITIONS. following the rules in force and according with the requirements of the National and Andean Regulations,such as

  • In my opinion the most serious opposition filed was by the Cuenca Hat producer.

  • The main argument was that the Paja Toquilla does not only grow in Montecristi and there are not specifications that the weavers could used to identify the difference between Montecristi and Cuenca Hats


The differences
THE DIFFERENCES following the rules in force and according with the requirements of the National and Andean Regulations,such as

  • Micro climate

  • the latitude, humidity, rainfall and soil properties of Montecristi, create conditions that yield the smoothest, longest and strongest fiber of paja toquilla plants of any locale in Ecuador.

  • The Microclimate of Cuenca is drier and of higher altitude (No study Exists in the DO)

  • Treatment of hats

  • Montecristi hats are treated with sulfur then washed (a longer slower process)

  • Cuenca Hats are chemically bleached (this damages the fibers)

  • Shape and Life.

  • Montecristi hats can change the shape after being washed, Cuenca hats can not.

  • Montecristi have a longer life. Cuenca can be used only a few years


Other problems
OTHER PROBLEMS following the rules in force and according with the requirements of the National and Andean Regulations,such as

  • WEAK ASSOCIATION. Formed by persons with different levels of education, distrust, People normally exploited

  • NO TECNICHAL STANDARDS.-No standards to measure and control the quality.
