Montecristo Panama Hats now open in Yountville
The V Marketplace is now home to Montecristo which carries an extensive line of Panama hats, plus sandals, leather handbags and other items from Ecuador. The hats which are the finest quality are made from young toquilla leafs grown in the countryside around the town of Montecristo and then made there by master weavers. This is the only place you will find quality Carludovic palmata, or toquilla plant and then only the plants which grow close to the Pacific Ocean.
The owners of the new shop, Elba Mercedes and Fabian Anda, which opened mid-July in the Yountville complex, has been doing a brisk busy since opening their doors. They come to Yountville with a past in running Italian restaurants in Houston, Texas and Bartlesville. Oklahoma. They decided to take a break from the hectic restaurant business and in 2011 decided to visit the Napa Valley to see their daughter. Of course, Yountville was a love at first sight and it was a natural course to the chain of events which led them to open their exciting new shop.
In the near past, they had been thinking about a business which featured high end Panama Hats and the fit was perfect. Granted, we still call them Panama Hats even though the ones sold here are from Ecuador but nevertheless, they are truly great looking and fine quality hats. Please stop by if ever in Yountville and tell them I sent you. Thanks and cheers cvc
