This project made for Sala Proceso of Cuenca in Ecuador focuses on the local company (balaclavas are made with Dorfzaun of Panama hats factory) producing Hat Panama, that the Ecuadorian workers were used for the construction of the same. The evolution to the current time of this straw hat, once the classic has been absorbed by the aristocracy and the dominant social class, cannot be other than the hooded, Balaclava. The balaclava is the current hat of the worker of the 21st century, once his work focuses on the defense of the same and fight for their right to dignity and a workplace.
