Welcome to SOLBARI.
All fabrics have some ability to block UVR but laboratory testing is needed to tell how useful different fabrics are for sun protection by measuring the Ultra-violet Protection Factor or “UPF” rating for the fabric.
Multiple factors that contribute to the UPF rating of a fabric include: composition of the yarn, tightness of the weave or knit, colour, stretch, moisture, condition and finishing.
Our Melbourne based research & development team that has spent years sourcing and testing the most lightweight, breathable and comfortable fabrics that also achieve the maximum Australian Government UPF 50+ rating.
The Australian Government, with no exceptions, independently completes all of the SOLBARI fabric testing.
We submit for testing every colour, in every fabric and we do this every time we produce a new yarn. We only continue our production of SOLBARI garments once our fabric has been certified with the maximum rating of UPF50+.
