It is said invention is the mother of necessity. And this couldn’t be truer for new sun protection brand Ombra and Sole.
Founders Kara and Guy Giovenco were inspired to create this brand to promote sun protection and safety to families after Kara herself was diagnosed with four different melanomas.
Four years later, the family has turned their troubles around by focusing on creating high quality, UV protected products for all the family. Launching with a five panelled kids’ cap, the family have big ambitions for the future – all with the same vision to inspire families to have fun safely in the great Australian outdoors. ‘
Being parents to two little ones themselves, Kara and Guy know the importance of instilling a responsible attitude towards sun safety early on – with these trendy caps in a neutral palette your kids will be reaching for their caps without you having to ask!
Ombra and Sole caps have a unique five panel structure and signature tan suede brim to keep little faces covered. They are made from 100% cotton with UPF50 which will keep your kids protected from harmful UVA/UVB rays. Reasonably priced at $36.95, the caps are available in two different sizes and three different shades, all inspired by the colours of the Australian landscape:
- Daintree (green): inspired by the lush green Daintree rainforest in QLD
- Hart (pink): inspired by the beautiful pink lakes of SA
- Snow (off-white): inspired by the white and wintery snowy mountains of NSW
In addition, all cap sales will support melanoma research through a $1 donation to the Australian Skin Cancer Foundation.
So, if you’re looking for a fashionable kid’s cap to keep your little one’s face protected AND looking good, check out Ombra and Sole. We can’t wait to see what’s next from this incredible brand!
