My beloved Borso panama is starting to show its age. Yesterday, I leaned into the car to get something and banged my hat on the door edge. The straw cracked in two places. One split is about an inch long along the crown at the back of the the hat with the straw fibers crushed at one end; the other split is about two and a half inches long along the side of the crown. Both splits meet up nicely and are almost invisible. I've done some straw hat repair in the past and have an idea about how to proceed, but I thought I'd check with the experts on the forum to see what you all thought would be the best way to approach this.
