Start with the Panama as normal

·         Fold the brim down all the way round

·         Push in one side of the crown, folding along the front-back crease

·         Push the rest of the side of the hat in so that you end up with one half of the hat inside the other

·         Start to roll the hat from the front edge

·         Ensure the centre of the crown is not rolled too tightly, otherwise you risk breaking the fibres

·         Secure and insert into the provided balsa wood box

·         Flick to reinstate (merely reverse the above procedure)

·         We recommend that you unfold the hat as soon as possibleThe hat should be stored unfolded, out of direct sunlight.

·         Once unrolled, the hat may take a little while to settle into shape, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity.

·         If necessary leave the hat in a steamy bathroom will speed the process.
