As an Aussie, I love the sun. I grew up going to the beach and long walks in the wilderness.
Unfortunately I also grew up with a family haunted by skin cancer. Both my grandparents had melanomas and it eventually took my grandpa from me.
I also watched as my mum lost half her nose and half her ear to melanoma.
It was so ingrained in my family, I was scared.
Also ingrained in me though is a love of classic style and fashion. I have been obsessed with hats since I was a young child. My Great Grandmother was a successful milliner in Western Australia, I've been surrounded by statement hats all my life.
When I created Mason Hats, it really was my two worlds colliding. I wanted to create something that was going to provide great protection from the sun, but that didn’t compromise on style.
Joined by my husband Jaye, Mason Hats has become a popular Australian hat label showcasing classic and timeless designs for men, women and kids with every hat is hand finished right here in Tasmania.
We love your feedback on our hats and styles and welcome your messages. Thank you for supporting the Mason dream.
Love Holly + Jaye
