MonPanama – the luxury brand that brought the legendary Panama hat story to Asia
Inspired by her travels and her passion for old movies, the Swiss founder of MonPanama, Anne-Claude Toral, has been fascinated by Panama hats and handbags since her childhood.
As a small girl, she would create an imaginary world by dressing herself up in the flamboyant Panama hats and handbags she found in her grandmother’s chest. These childhood memories would have a profound influence on MonPanama’s creative development, while the names all pay homage to the glamorous movie actresses of a bygone age.
Now living in Bangkok with her husband and children, Anne-Claude also works as a retail consultant for luxury hotels in South-East Asia.
What We Do
True to the ethics of slow fashion, MonPanama accessories are meticulously handmade by skilled artisans from the initial raw material selection to the very finishing of the product.
All MonPanama hats are genuine panama hats entirely handwoven in Ecuador by skilled weavers and are inspected individually to pass a strict quality control.
All MonPanama bags are entirely designed and handmade by skilled artisans in South-East Asia, using local natural fibers and are inspected individually to pass a strict quality control.
Welcome to MonPanama!
Meaning “my Panama hat” in French, the name MonPanama was born from the idea that everyone can create their MonPanama persona by matching their head size and face shape with their preferred style from the many handcrafted hats in the extensive MonPanama collection.
