A little more about Emily Brooks.
Emily Brooks has already brought her unique colourful and fun-filled animal prints to Harrods, Liberty + John Lewis with her unique homeware, stationary and gifts. Based in London, Emily has loved drawing since a child and turned her attention from hobby to business in 2018 with her first range of cards. Since then she continued to follow her passion for colour + uplifting people and is stocked in Harrods, Liberty, John Lewis and many more. On top of all of this she is an absolute gem and her Instastories are those of legends having Idris Elba as a fan.
A little more about the HAT
Little Hotdog Watson takes Hat making seriously. We are specialists in our field.
Our mission is to make the best kids hats in the whole world. We create high-quality, responsibly-made kidswear designed to give parents peace of mind, and made to be worn with a bit of attitude. You’ll never need another hat for your little adventurers.
Our best selling Arctic Cub winter hat has been designed exclusively in collaboration with Emily Brooks and this hat is one for all the family.
The Arctic Cub hat features the Wolf Pack. A family of sorts, exploring, playing leaping, adventuring and looking after each other. The green + orange combo with splashes of lilacs and greys is pure Emily Brooks colours through and through. Printed onto 100% Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) cotton and is densely woven for a modern finish.
Trimmed with a super soft and snuggly bright orange faux fur trim that lines the ear flaps as well as the front panel.
Little Hotdog Watson x Emily Brooks hats are also jam-packed with winter-ready smart design. The Arctic Cub trapper hat includes:
- RainAway – Water resistant fabric
- KidCosy – Lined with thinsulate to be super warm
- TwinkleTwinkle – Reflective safety detailing
- Machine washable
The Perfect Fit
Fit + comfort go hand in hand in our opinion and Little Hotdog Watson hats are designed to fit really comfortably. We've modernised the traditional trapper hat by re-inventing the way we cut it.
Our hats are cut into several considered panels to ensure comfort without tightness. The back of the hat is designed to arch slightly upwards at the back to allow for winter coats to be worn comfortably with it.
The ear flaps are designed so they can also be worn with hearing aids and sit comfortably by little ears. The ear flaps also have small 'non-scratchy' kids velcro fastening tabs so the ear flaps can be worn in three ways, down and loose, fastened under the chin or fastened up and out of the way - we call this listening ears at Hotdog HQ when you're shouting your little one for tea!
It's important that we create long lasting products, designed for real family life. Beyond that we consider how we construct each hat to reduce any wastage.
To avoid fabric wastage we cut the hat pieces to make the most of the fabulous Wolves fabric. This means each hat has its own unique print placement and is not exactly like the picture. Unique just like our kids.
The Arctic Cub hat also features two little ears on top. Cute, yes but also created from the remaining fabric once the hat pattern is cut out.
We take our pattern cutting seriously.
Did we also mention we also create our premium cotton fabric in a mill run largely on solar energy.
*Adults hats do not have the small ears on top.
Little Hotdog Watson hats are safety tested to the highest level and produced ethically.

Care + Composition
100% BCI cotton inner
100% faux fur trim. No animal products.
All trims, labels and threads are either recycled or responsibly sourced.
Wipe with a damp sponge or machine wash at 30 degrees.
Do not tumble dry.
Little Hotdog Watson cuts our printed fabric in two directions so that we reduce fabric wastage and each hat is unique just like kids. Any smaller leftover fabrics are utilised in our cute ears and straps to minimise our environmental footprint.
How It's Made
The fabric mill is run using 75% solar energy. The process is water-efficient and treats waste effluents, as well as capturing and reusing water during the washing processes.
Environmentally Friendly Dyes
The dyes we use are Oeko-Tex® certified, meaning they are non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals.
Little Hotdog Watson carries out a thorough working conditions and environmental audit before working with any factory.
Our hats are long lasting because we use construction techniques that don’t cut corners.
We check each stage and each element by eye. We carry out rigorous performance tests and wearer trials. So that your hat can be handed down to siblings for new adventures.
