Need a hat for your child that has great coverage, great looks, a great fit AND great value for money? Then you’re in the right place! Our Heritage range of broadbrim hats features three different styles to protect kids from six months up to teens. Made from 100% organic linen, all of the broadbrim hats are fully reversible giving you two hats in one, are adjustable for the perfect fit that grows with the child, and come in a huge range of modern patterns and muted colours.
Each of the broadbrim and bucket styles - Wanderer Panelled Bucket, Explorer Classic Bucket and Sightseer Wide-Brimmed Bonnets - feature an earthy neutral colour on one side and a beautiful coordinating pattern on the other, giving you two hats for the price of one! With wide, anti-flop brims, the hats are UPF50+ and are so light and comfy, children don’t even realise they’re wearing a hat. Our adjustable ribbons on the back of the broadbrim hats allow the hat to grow with your child, getting the perfect fit every time. Chin ties on all of the Heritage bucket and broadbrim sun hats keep them in place, and the features of this range make it a popular choice among families looking for the best sun hats for their children.
Made from 100% linen, the Heritage range is perfect for those who love to match their children, with adults hats in the same prints and colours as the children’s styles. Not only is linen cool in summer and warm in winter, its manufacturing process is one of the most eco-friendly options: flax, from which linen is woven, is grown without the use of pesticides or water other than rainwater and leaves no waste. Linen is also recyclable, biodegradable, hypoallergenic and antibacterial.
A hat is an essential part of daily wear in Australia to protect children from the harsh sun. Starting them early is also a good step to ensuring your child is a happy hat wearer, as once they start daycare or school, they will need to be wearing hats every time they head outside. We encourage parents to start babies wearing hats from birth – our legionnaire and flap hats are ideal for new babies. Bedhead has a range of different hat collections for all occasions, all rated UPF50+ so your children can be protected anytime they’re in the sun. For swimming, we suggest our Swim Classic and Swim Ponytail Bucket hats along with rash vests and wet bags, and while the linen of our Heritage broadbrim range is quite a warm fabric in winter, we suggest our cosy fleecy legionnaire hats and fingerless mittens for kids on those blistering cold days.
