About Us

A Cape Town Love Affair.

Cape Town, the southernmost tip of South Africa, is a magical place that rustles your hair, gets under your skin, and soothes your soul. A paradise with golden beaches, azure summer skies, and the ever-present iconic Table Mountain as its beautiful backdrop. Beyond this, the natural wilderness of the African continent is just a short trip away from the luxurious and cosmopolitan vibe of the city.

House of Ord – Cape Town was founded here with the aim of sharing our love for Cape Town, combined with a desire to protect against the sun. Sunshine-filled days contribute to a colourful and sensual ambiance that defines true Capetonian style.

With an eye for detail, House of Ord – Cape Town provides high-quality hats where craftsmanship and premium materials are embodied in timeless and elegant designs. We believe in sharing our expertise in sun protection so our customers can explore the natural beauty of this world while safely enjoying the sun.


UPF50+ UV Protection

As part of our commitment to providing the highest level of UV protection, the design and materials of selected sun hats have gained the maximum rating of UPF50+ for exposure to high levels of sun radiation. UPF50+ is globally recognized as the highest sun protective rating available. Wearing our certified UPF50+ sun hats allow you to maintain healthy skin when exposed to the sun, by blocking 97.5% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Designed for Living

Travel-friendly! Select sun hats are crush-resistant and can be packed and squashed flat into a suitcase with ease, ensuring you carry certified sun protection with you wherever you go, protecting your skin from the sun on your travels.

Renewable Resources

We actively work with our international design partners in Australia to focus on extending product longevity through innovative methods, functional features, and the use of premium quality materials. Sun hats designed using natural materials are durable, long lasting and lightweight to wear. The natural fibre materials are sustainably sourced from around the globe, ensuring trees and plants remain unharmed allowed to regrow before the next renewable harvest.

Fashionable & Functional

We know what makes a perfect hat! Our signature methods of adjustment, innovative new fabrics and on-trend colours and shapes set our sun hat collections apart. From unique adjustments designed for wind resistance to crushable fabrics perfect for travel, we never compromise on quality.
