Armed with creativity, curiosity, and a little bit of maritime cord, Michael Saiger taught himself how to handcraft his own rustic, yet timeless, accessories. This endeavor has given birth to MIANSAI (a contraction of MIchael ANdrew SAIger), a coveted line now stocked in Bergdorf Goodman’s, Barney’s Co-op, Neiman Marcus, Colette, and other similar fine stores.

Having since expanded from his first basic bracelets to necklaces, keychains, hats, and more, one of MIANSAI’s latest releases is a line of Panama Hats in Natural, Black, Grey, and Navy.

Each genuine Panama Hat—hand-woven in Ecuador and finished in Miami—is detailed with a maritime grade nylon cord and MIANSAI brass piece.
