Heading outdoors? Protect your dome with an American-made hat.
Spending a lot of time in the sun this summer? Don’t merely protect your skin from UV rays with a hat, protect your head, by choosing a hat made from sun protective fabric. The Solumbra line made by Sun Precautions is made from fabric with 100+ SPF all-day UVA and UVB sun protection.
The company’s president Shaun Hughes was diagnosed and treated for malignant melanoma, a deadly skin cancer, 30 years ago and has since made it his goal to help create medically-accepted sun protection that can be depended on to block the sun’s strong rays every day.
In addition to hats, the Solumbra line also features other sun-protective clothing and accessories.
Sun Precautions is also committed to providing items that are domestically-made by craftsmen who earn a sustainable wage. The majority of Solumbra products are made in Seattle, Washington, except for the Panama straw hats, parasols, and gloves, which are made outside the United States.
