When I first started making Sol a Mer hats in 2014 it was for my mom (who was in cancer remission) and my friends, who are probably a lot like you (and now me)...concerned about skin cancer, have sensitive skin or proactive about health and aging.
Little did I know that I would become a Sol a Mer customer.
As an established hat maker with my own 5,000 sq ft hat factory (in Manhattan), a hat shop in Neiman Marcus and a client roster that includes Oprah , Anne Hathaway, Lady Gaga Usher, Madonna, Reese Witherspoon and so many more. I have always seen hat making as my craft - hand making each one with precision, love, and surprise details (secret wallets and reversible!).
In 2018, after the birth of my daughter, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease and overnight my easy-to-tan skin became sun sensitive. For the first time in my life I needed to be thinking about SPF vs UPF.
Luckily my mission of weaving fashion with sun protection came to my rescue. I wear my Sol a Mer hat daily with my kids, when hiking, swimming at the beach or in town or gardening.
I designed this hat to be lightweight and easy to care, one that will protect you from UV rays without sacrificing style.
I believe in this hat and the quality that I offer a lifetime quality guarantee.
