Bedhead Hats is a family run business based on the NSW Central Coast - 100% Aussie owned. They take great pride in creating a range of hats that make sun safety more comfortable for babies & children.
Teaching children to wear hats can be a trying time for parents. Bedhead makes this life skill easier to learn. With hats small enough to fit newborns from the day they leave hospital, it is never too early to start. Familiarising a baby with the sensation of wearing a hat, especially with a brim is the key to raising a toddler that searches for their hat to wear before going outdoors.
Sustainability and Business Ethos
At Bedhead, the urge to protect, nurture and enjoy life extends beyond their products and into the way the entire company operates. From the people who make their hats, to how they're packaged, to where and how they operate as a business, Bedhead are doing their best to do their part for the planet, their customers, their community, their makers and their employees.
To ensure Bedhead hats are of greatest protection, they are tested on the overall hat design. Most hats in the marketplace are only tested on the fabric alone - which can deteriorate over time reducing protection, let alone taking into account the size or angle of a hats brim.
All Bedhead Bucket hat, Baby Bucket hat & Legionnaire styles have achieved a rating of UPF50+ Excellent Protection. The Federal Government agency ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency) performs Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) testing in accordance with Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS4399.
Due to the nature of reflected or scattered ultraviolet radiation, hats and caps cannot necessarily provide adequate protection. We recommend a combination of protective clothing and the use of SPF50+ sunscreen.
