Toquilla straw hats and handicrafts.
ATMA is located in Sig Sig, a community famous for the creation of panama hats, hand crafted using ancient traditional skills.
The association of artisan women ‘María Auxiliadora’ is dedicated to the production and commercialisation of the Ecuadorian emblematic toquilla straw hats (panama hats) that are traded worldwide.
The product is 100 % handmade; the only raw material they use is toquilla straw. The skilled artisans achieve a fine product that has unique international quality.
Ethical Focus & Policy
ATMA consists of 175 artisan women who hand weave the Ecuadorian hats.
This association believes in fair trade and applies these policies to create a solid economic standing. Through their work, these artisans generate income for their families.
The collection of the toquilla straw is made in a sustainable way, protecting the fields and preventing environmental pollution.
