Es war unser erster Familienurlaub mit meinem kleinen Baby. Ich hatte Träume von Abenteuern und Spaß, stattdessen versteckten wir uns drinnen vor der heißen Sonne und beißenden Insekten. Mein Baby war heiß und zog ständig einen Hut ab, der aussah, als wäre er vor langer Zeit entworfen worden, in der es nur Pink für Mädchen und Blau für Jungen gab.
In diesem stressigen Urlaub ging mir ein Licht auf.
Unsere Kinderhüte können mehr als nur gut sitzen. Wir sind führend im Bereich intelligentes Design. Wir verwenden innovative Materialien in Kombination mit unserem Rundum-Ansatz. So schaffen wir Hüte, die wirklich einzigartig sind. Hüte, die Problemlösungen nahtlos kombinieren.
We take our time with every product. We check, we test, we workshop our pieces. We send them out to real families to let them try them. It means our hats work, fits, and can handle day-to-day life and family adventures. Our attention to detail ensures long-standing performance and peace of mind.
We aim to empower modern families so getting out and about in the fresh air is as easy and stylish as possible – no matter where their explorations take them. From courtyard to forest, playground to meadow, city to beach, we're here to make the every day more stylish and less stressful.
We believe it’s possible to build a business based on creating ethically-sourced, responsibly-made products while paying fair wages. It’s just the right thing to do.
Working with the best fabrics, technologies and people we build long-standing relationships that ensures we know the supply chain inside out.
We design every detail from scratch. Our smart design technologies provide extensive protection for young adventurers, whatever the weather. Sun hats that protect from UV, Mosquitoes and Overheating. While our winter hats are water-resistant, reflective and extra warm. And our bold gender neutral prints are exclusively designed by us, for us.
It was our first family holiday with my tiny baby. I had dreams of adventures and fun, instead we were inside hiding from the hot sun and bitey bugs. My baby was hot and constantly pulling off a hat that looked like it had been designed in a long ago era full of pink for girls and blue for boys.
That 'stressful' holiday was my lightbulb moment.
Becoming a 'Business'
I’d spent my career developing products for menswear. I knew I could make a better hat that solved the problems parents face.
A hat that made going outside stylish and less stressful. While changing the model from fast pace to thoughtful production.
Based in Norwich, UK we launched in 2016. Since then our family and our hat ranges have grown and we've won a few awards!
