Our Revolutionary Squishee® Material

By 1995, Eric Javits had already been in the hat business for more than 15 years. He had extensive design experience, a broad industry overview, and encyclopedic knowledge of available hat making materials with which he could work. Eric recognized the need for a straw sunhat that could be packed for travel without cracking or loosing it’s shape, but none existed. Taking into account people’s lifestyle needs, Eric embarked on developing a braid material that simulated the look of straw but which was actually a composite of man-made fibers. After a year of development time, Eric’s goal was realized. The result was a straw like material that was lightweight and flexible, that could be easily shaped. It had a wonderful feel, breathability, as well as ease of maintenance. Eric named the material Squishee® because that best described what it could do. A hat made of it was so comfortable, that a person wearing it would forget they had one on. The material’s flexibility enabled it to be shaped to compliment an individual’s face. Eric Javits is the originator of Squishee®, and although there are now numerous imitations, none match the original. 

As an artist in his own right, Eric Javits has enriched the Fashion Accessories Industry by creating designs which charm, endure and are fun to wear. Uncompromising design and intelligent luxury are the hallmark of the Eric Javits brand.

The Squishee® hat could be rolled up for travel and then spring back to its original shape undamaged. This hat, first introduced in 1995 is now widely recognized as having changed the course of the women's headwear market. The design patented material looks just like natural raffia straw, but is actually made from partially recycled plastic, making it sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Squishee® is resilient and durable. The material doesn't melt or crack when wet, and it doesn't require any special care. It's packable, so you can roll or fold your wide-brim hat to pack it into your beach bag or carry-on. When you're ready to wear your hat, it will regain its shape and look as good as new. The fit of a hat is as important as the fit of a shoe. All Eric Javits sun hats have elasticized inner bands, which hug the head comfortably.

If you are an individual with a special head size, your favorite hat can be ordered in a custom size for a nominal additional fee. Our customer service department can assist you in getting the hat with the correct head size. 

Our attractive, practical Squishee® fabric has been tested and awarded the highest rating for 50+ UPF protection according to independent tests in line with standards set by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC). The broad brims of these sun hats provide shade and block up to 95% of the sun's harmful UVA/UVB rays, protecting your skin. Today the fastest growing cancer among young people is melanoma, which is caused by sun exposure. Dermatologist recommend wearing a sun hat in conjunction with sunblock in order to protect your skin from premature aging due to ultraviolet radiation.

Anyone can wear a hat. Women come in all shapes and sizes and so do hats. Every face is unique and may have specific requirements. Some women may feel they can not wear hats, when in fact they can. They just have not been informed as to how to choose the right one. Obviously, women of average height and size have the advantage of being able to wear the greatest varieties of hats and styles. Someone who may feel uncomfortable being noticed if they wear a hat should experiment with an unobtrusive beginner style like a cap, visor or small brimmed fedora, which will not attract attention. The only way to overcome the fear of something is to just do it!
