About Us

Long time friends and founders, Skye Hollingsworth (Hollie) & Claire Harris (Harrie) are joined together by a love of the sunny outdoors and family life.

We adore the beach and outdoors but dread the sunburn. We are very 'sun smart' but find the existing beach tents on the market too stifling, provide no natural air flow and our children do not enjoy sitting in them.

And so we designed the Sombrilla as our first product. Stylish and extremely practical, children love playing (and adults love to relax!) under the shade provided by the Sombrilla and 95% UV protection will give you added peace of mind.

Since release of the Sombrilla in 2010 sales both locally in Australia and internationally ( USA, Europe and New Zealand ) have increased each year with many sales to existing satisfied customers and the Sombrilla is now a common sight on many beaches around the world .

In Feb 2017 Hollie & Harrie was purchased by Australia's largest importer and wholesaler of Beach Shade and Beach furniture - "The Beachkit Group" and is based in Melbourne, Australia and is able to deliver their 'sun protection' collection right around the world. From June 2017 stock is available from our USA ( Phoenix AZ.) warehouse.

Celebrating 10 years in business - Summer 2020 !
