ALL ABOUT US
Exportadora K. Dorfzaun was founded in 1939 by the first generation of the Dorfzaun family who took refuge in Ecuador from the horrors of the Second World War.
Semi Dorfzaun - the pioneer, had bought a Panama Hat in Germany in 1935. He was determined to find the origin of this beautiful object as he searched for a safe haven and a place to start a new life.Learn More
