As it turns out, gardeners aren’t the only Tula fans. Boaters love the lightweight feel and UPF 50+ sun protection, too.
Alice, the founder and owner of Tula Hats bought her first wide-brimmed palm hat in Mexico City in 1989. With a passion for gardening and a family history of skin cancer, she knew the importance of sun protection and wanted to provide affordable hats that protect the skin, are easy to wear and look good on. The residents of the small Mexican village where Alice chose to manufacture Tula hats have been producing palm hats for over four centuries.
