Creel with Mallard Stripe by Bailey
A shantung 'straw' hat is made from high performance paper rolled into a fine yarn and then woven, a process perfected by the Japanese in 610 a.D. This lighter yet very strong "Washi" paper offered a perfect panama alternative and was dubbed the shantung panama.
Bailey's finely woven shantungs are glazed with their proprietary lite straw finish to provide a supple feel, water repellency and enhanced shape retention. The creel is a classic center dent shape that is available with a seasonal array of band colors.
Made in the USA
