Bedhead Hats

Best in Sun Protection

Bedhead Bucket, Broad brim and Legionnaire hat styles are all rated UPF50+ to the Australia Standard. Our hats are tested on their design - not just on the fabric, so you can be sure you are buying the safest hats for your children. Bedhead Hats is a family run business based on the NSW Central Coast - 100% Aussie owned

We take great pride in creating a range of hats that make sun safety more comfortable for babies & children.

Our Philosophy
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.

Our Excellent Protection

To ensure our 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.

Our Manufacturing

Bedhead Hats are manufactured in Changzhou, China. The factory is a family run business (much like our own) with a team of 15 machinists plus another 5 staff for pressing and packing. No sweat shop production line going on at all. Clean, well lit and nicely ventilated - a factory that I am proud to have manufacture our products for over 5 years. I visit the factory yearly in June to inspect our products quality before it is shipped to Australia.
