I first started making hats for my mom when she lost her hair undergoing Cancer treatment using nothing but a Jiffy steamer and a home iron.
9 years later...and my mom is doing amazing and the inspiration behind both my Hat brands, Satya Twena and Sol a Mer.
While I started making Sol a Mer hats 3 years ago before taking a beach vacation, it wasn't until my skin changed after giving birth to my daughter that I really understood my mission with Sol a Mer hats. Up until 2016 my skin was completely normal. Hats were just for aesthetics; but now they are a necessity. Between my new skin condition (Vitiligo) and just being more cautious - I have realized the importance of having a hat companion like Sol a Mer.
