Urban Canairie is a revolutionary hat that does triple-duty in keeping you cool, comfortable and protected while wearing it out on the course or any place you please. This breezy cap is elegantly designed for an active lifestyle.
If you’re wondering about the name Urban Canairie – Urban reflects the increasing trend of people living in cities, while Canairie is an acronym for Canadian, Airy and Irie (which has Jamaican origins meaning happy and content).
Urban Canairie sun hats are lighter and keep you cooler than baseball caps or wide brim hats, offering the right balance of sun protection and heat-venting comfort. This is accomplished with a thin mesh that goes completely around the cap, aiding in air circulation and coolness for the wearer.
The caps are made by skilled craftsmen and women, working with their hands and sewing with fabrics and materials supplied by an American company. The stitching is strong and inside finishing is perfectly done giving the cap a sophisticated look and feel. The cap is much cooler to wear than a baseball cap, that traps air inside of the cap, which can often bring on overheating for the wearer. Urban Canairie caps also provide protection from the sun and even better, it doesn’t give you “hat head”.
Obviously, mesh material does not block 100% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, however, for extended durations with full sun exposure, it’s recommended you use a high SPF suntan lotion on your ears and neck.
The Urban Canairie company is sincere when it comes being environmentally friendly. Their caps are made from 65% recycled plastic bottles and 35% certified organic cotton – this goes to show how much they appreciate and value the beauty of nature and know that they need to do in order to protect it. This reduces landfill waste through recycling and minimizes pollution via an ecologically friendly and sustainable process for dyeing and finishing fabric.
