Bamboo Sun Protective Fashion

Sha-de aims to provide a safe, stylish and comfortable way to enjoy the sun.  

Through working closely with the CSIRO in fabric development, Sha-de’s Founder, Julia Van Der Sommen, discovered the secret to knitting natural fibre to offer high UPF fabric. The first Sha-de garments were made in lightweight merino fabric, and now the technology has been transferred to bamboo with even greater success.

Julia is a strong believer in nurturing and developing the local Australian manufacturing and textile industry, and is hands on in ensuring the strict quality standards are adhered to, to ensure the quality of the product.


Note: All Sha-de’s Australian made products are ECA accredited.

Note: This business proudly manufactures 100% in Australia.
