Sig sig is a canton in Azuay, west of Cuenca, where the main activities are agriculture and artisanship. From generation to generation, the women weavers of Sigsig have learned the delicate craftsmanship of weaving straw hats. They are commonly known as “Panama Hats” but they are originally made in Ecuador.
Cuenca is the capital of Azuay province and the third largest city in Ecuador.
