Made from 100% hemp fabric that softens and fades over time but remains durable.
It is the world's strongest natural fibre and does not require herbicides or pesticides in crop production.
It is truly an environmentally friendly crop.
The fabrics of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.
You still need SPF 30 sunscreen and sunglasses with UV filters! Children especially need the UV filters in their sunglasses as non-filtering glasses will increase the size of their pupils, allowing even more of the damaging UV rays to enter.
This often causes cataracts and retinal problems later in life and has happened in my (Alex Tilley's) own family.
Yes, Dorothy, there can be truth in advertising. For instance, although our Hats block 98% of UV rays, some rays COULD enter through the ventilation grommets.
We hand-sew each Hat using very strong thread; all seams are lock-stitched so they won't unravel.
The brass is from Britain and is the best there is.
All Hats are made with such care and dedication that one is as good as another.
Your Tilley will be equal to that presented to a president or princess. ("Hi, Duke! How long have you had your Tilley?" could be an effective opener.)
Like its owner, your TH8 Tilley Hat requires a little care to look lovely for life.
Wash: Hand wash gently in warm water with mild soap. Do not use any fabric softener or bleach!
Dry: Gently wrap in towel to remove excess water.
Smooth out any wrinkles and put it over a bowl that is turned upside down or stuff with tissue paper to maintain the shape of the crown.
Let it dry with the brim turned down (like an umbrella).
Air Dry. When it is dry, shape it back by turning the edge of the brim up all around like it was when you first became enamoured with it.
Iron: Depending on your preference it may need a little touch up. If so, using the “cotton” temperature setting, iron the brim area while being very careful not to apply any heat to the very edge where the trim is sewn on.
If you have chosen a hat with the black mesh trim, please ensure the iron does not touch any part of the black trim.
We are hopeful that you will enjoy the character your special Tilley begins to develop now and forever.
Remember, it is guaranteed for life not to wear out.
