About Sunday Afternoons, Inc. 
Based in Southern Oregon, Sunday Afternoons is a family-owned design and product development house that manufactures hats and apparel. It was one of the first companies to manufacture UPF-rated sun blocking products in the nation. Known for its innovative products, the company expands the boundaries in headwear technology, design and application.

Founders Angeline and Robbin Lacy came up with their first product idea, the Adventure Blanket, in 1990, followed by the Adventure Hat in 1996 – all while doing what they love: being outdoors with their family on Sunday afternoons. Sunday Afternoons’ business model includes healthy living, supporting an ecological environment, assisting in third world improvements, and upholding a positive (and dog-friendly) work environment.
