We love receiving stories and photos from around the world showing happy people in their Emthunzini sun hats. Thank you to all of you who sent photographs to us.

No matter where you are in the world or what season, it is important to remain protected from the sun throughout the day.

Why travel with our sun hats?

We encourage traveling with our Emthunzini Hats as most of our hats are endorsed by The Cancer Association of South Africa CANSA [link CANSA page for Sunhats] offering the assurance of protection against the harmful effects of the sun.

What makes traveling with our hats so easy?

Emthunzini Hats are mostly crushable and washable making them easy travel companions.

How to pack your hat?

For those hats that are crushable simply push the crown of the hat straight down to flatten out the hat and lay flat in your suitcase so that it won't get folded or creased.

How to wash your hat while traveling?

Check the tag on your hat to see the recommended cleaning instructions.

How to reshape your hat?

To reshape the dents in your hat, if you are able to, steam the hat lightly followed by a hairdryer, reshape the rim with your fingers and then air dry or leave in the sun.
