I enjoy 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.
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 of their hats is unique and made by hand in a Mexican village. Further, they are certified fair-trade, which ensures that the craftsmen receive fair wages and work in safe working conditions.
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, it 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!
The folks at Tula Hats are offering the chance for two Southwest Gardening Blog followers to win one of their most popular hats, the ‘Laurel Lattice’, which has a larger front brim with decorative lattice.
