Product Review: Tula Hats

Tula Hat Style ‘Laurel Lattice’

I enjoy spending time out in the garden, but the intense sun of the Southwest isn’t good for my fair skin, so wearing a hat is a must for me. I’ve worn many different types of hats and have never found just the right one that is fashionable while offering decent sun protection, until now. Tula Hats is a company based in the Southwest that blends stylish headwear with the highest degree of sun protection available. 

Tula Women’s ‘Brook’ Hat

Mexican artisans have been making hand-woven hats using the fibers from palm leaves to create hats for more than four centuries and the folks at Tula Hats have partnered with them to create fashionable hats that offer the ultimate shield from the sun, rated at UPF 50+. Each Tula Hat is unique and made by hand in a Mexican village. Further, the hats are certified fair-trade, ensuring that the craftsmen are paid fair wages and work in safe working conditions.

Gardener’s Lattice Hat and Women’s Ranch Hat

Tula hats come in a large variety of styles for both men and women and are suitable for wearing while gardening or attending an outdoor party. I am thrilled with my ‘Chloe’ hat and how versatile it is, and as I travel a lot, my hat is easy to pack by placing clothes inside and around it. There are so many great choices that I may need to buy another one, or two!

‘Laurel Lattice’ Tula Hat

    I have always hated wearing hats, but see so many women with cute ones that I keep trying. These might change my mind for good! I plan to seek them out.

  2. Becca Fontaine

    These Tula hats are gorgeous! They are high fashion chapeau regardless of the UPF 50+!! Since they are made right here in my town I’m going online to support local business. Thank you so much for bringing Tula hats to my attention—I’d love to win one too!!

    Living in Lake Havasu City AZ can be especially hard on our skin. With temperature reaching up to 120 degrees, the intensity of the sun can do so much damage to our skin. I wear high SPF sunscreen daily and a hat EVERY time I’m gardening our just out looking at my plants. One of these gorgeous hats would be great to Have! Love the Ranchh Hat! Thanks for the offer!

    These hats belong on my head! Thanks for letting us know about them.

  6. Brandi Young

    Hats are so important! I used to think sunglasses are all I need but then realized a hat offers much more protection. I’d give this hat to my sister because she just had two skin cancer spots removed from her cheek.

  7. June Veloce

    NIce hats! Definitely a MUST here. I can’t believe just how strong and bright it is compared to the east coast. Would love to have one!

  8. Diane

    Don’t have one but would love to try one, they look great!!

  9. Susan Wiggins

    Tula hats are my favorite for shielding my face, neck and shoulders from the brutal Texas sun. I have two and both have been incredibly durable. My sister in law has the Laurel and I have never seen her wear it. I am covetous for this hat. So sad.

  10. Carol A. LaPorte

    Beautiful hats! Having fair skin & recently having a skin cancer removed from my face means I have to ALWAYS wear a hat & sun screen when I’m outside here in Sedona, AZ. I would love to win one of these hats! Thanks for the opportunity.

  11. Hilary McDaniel

    I need one of these. I have a rare skin disease that
    Prohibits me from getting sun on my skin.
    I’ve bought so many hats and they never fit
    my head. I think I have a 8 1/2” head diameter
    Hope to win. Thanks

  12. Susan A. Lee

    I am an avid SW gardener that is allergic to the sun (lupus) so one of these beautiful hats would be IDEAL!

  13. Patti Q

    Just what I need as a new AZ gardener!

  14. Anngie McWilliams

    After having a skin cancer removed this year I must wear hats and long sleeves when in my garden. These hats are lovely and I would wear any or all of them. I rarely leave the house without a hat nowadays.

  15. Love these hats!

    Thanks for your posts! Nice to keep in touch with gardeners in the southwest!

  16. Cheryl Gehres

    Just what I need here in Phoenix!

  17. Elizabeth srutowski

    My husband always says to wear a hat while I’m out working in the yard. Unfortunately I haven’t found one I like yet. Hoping to win this to try.

  18. If Gardening in the Arizona sun…a hat with a rim is a must. Great looking hats!

  19. Margie Saulsbury

    This hat looks good, relief from the sun, and the fair trade agreement is a plus.

  20. Kylin C

    This is exactly the hat I’ve been looking for! I’d love to have it!!!

  21. Crystal Allard

    These hats are so cute!! I would love the chance to win one!!

  22. Kim Andrews

    Love the Laurel Lattice Hat by Tula!!! So much more sun protection from the wide brim and heat relief from the air space than other hats provide. It is a fashion I prefer. A must for my wardrobe.

  23. Lorna

    Would love one of these hats for when we are in Arizona!! I like your website and blogs!

  24. Diann Kollman

    I enjoy you articles, helpful and informative. And now a lovely sun hat, with info on where to get them. Thank you!

  25. Nancy Ely

    Besides being cute, I like that these hats are UPF 50+ and also that they are fair trade items.

  26. Marchelle Taylor

    Love the fact they have 7 1/4 for ladies. Only garden hat that fits right and they last forever.

  27. Shannon

    I always wear a hat in the garden but these put mine to same. Good looking hats!

  28. Darcie Naylor

    Love the selection! They are so cute. My husband has a great sun hat he wears, but I just stick a baseball cap on my head and a lot of sunscreen on my neck, face, and shoulders. These look like a much better option! Fingers crossed!

  29. Kathy Nickolich

    Loved your detailed plan for keeping palms healthy in your last report! It has helped us New Jersey transplants immensely, thank you. If I can’t win the laurel hat, I will definitely have to buy one.

  30. Sharon A McAvoy

    Everyone keeps telling me to Wear a hat! in hot hot Phoenix, so the Laurel Lattice hat could be just the hat I need!

  31. raymonde

    Hard to find practical & fashionable hats to protect in the AZ sun, even in early morning hours.
