About Us

Carry the shade with you.

The South African sun taught us how important it is to protect yourself against the sun’s harmful UV rays while enjoying your time outdoors.

With over 10 years of industry experience, we aim to share our expertise by bringing you a variety of sun hat collections designed to suit your lifestyle, under private labels House of Ord – Cape Town (available in Europe) and Emthunzini Hats (available in Southern Africa).

No matter what outdoor adventure you’re on, you can take premium sun protection with you wherever you go. Using high-quality materials and sustainable production methods as well as functional features, our stylish sun hats are designed to last.


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.
