In what country do you think Panama Hats were first made?

Update:

Strange. Y/A suggested putting this under "Society & Culture > Cultures & Groups > Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered ."

    COLOMBIA!!!!! Panama hats are actually called Aguadeño hats, originally made in the town of Aguadas, in the state of Caldas. The palm variety used for the weave is locally called jipijapa (pronounced hee pee haw paw) They became known as Panama hats during the construction of the Panama Canal. These hats were light, comfortable, and were made with a weave tight enough that allowed very little (if any) sun to percolate onto the wearer's face. The hats were brought back to the States by the people involved in the project and became known as panama hats. The best part was that Panama hats could be collpased flat, rolled up and placed in a carrying tube and not get crushed. When you went to wear it again all you needed to do was pop them open again and you had a hat to wear.
