Emthunzini Hats is a sub-brand of House of Ords which focuses on the design and sales of a fashionable range
of hats for men, women and children. Most hats carry the UPF50+ swing ticket which means they are specifically
tested and verified as meeting the UPF50+ requirements. Awarded the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA)
Seal of Recognition (CSOR), the hats offer the assurance of protection against the harmful effects of the
sun and therefore provide peace of mind.
They can be found in most corners of Southern Africa, Mauritius and the Seychelles. The success story of Emthunzini hats started in 2009 when Gilly and Sandy Ord, whilst holidaying on a sunny beach in Phuket Thailand, met up with their long standing friends from Australia.
Victoria was wearing a fantastic, attractive, colourful sunhat. Gilly, whose past experiences have taught her to recognize a great product when she sees one, was smitten and instantly wanted one. They immediately made enquiries about bringing the hats onto the South African market, especially as nothing similar appeared to be available.
