    Featured Top Hat: Sienna

    In 2015 we launched a new selection of hats in a range called the E-Collection.

    The E-Collection is the finest collection of Emthunzini fashion hats, specifically designed for those occasions when you need to take your style up a notch. They compliment the already established line of mostly crushable, washable UPF50+ hats.

    This month we feature the Sienna top sunhat. Named after our newest grandchild, this chic medium size brim hat is made from 100% natural fibre and is  available in two colour tones, charcoal and light brown. The thick, waxed cord with trim finishes the look.
