I came across these unique baby bonnets and absolutely love them! We got to review one, and its just as cute in person as it looks online. The bonnets are all handmade in the US, reversible, and sooo much fun. I love the fabric combinations available. Esther has been wearing hers now to keep the chilly wind off of her, but it will also be great in the summer as a sun hat. We can even use it as a nursing cover up by folding the brim forward. There are boy hats available, and super cute fleece hats for winter too.
Designer-Mom Colette, is an artist and enjoys spreading her cheerful colored bonnets across the world in what she calls the urban baby bonnet project. A sort of worldwide sculptural installation. You can read her artist/ project statement on her website. I love that her business is not just about selling bonnets, its about the color and art and life involved. Very cool and so much fun to be a part of.
Esther's hat fits her well with room to grow. I like that it snaps, rather than having long ties or scratchy velcro. There are several snaps, so the hat will fit her for quite a while. The hats are a bit pricey, so I consider this a splurge item. You could think of it as buying a fine piece of artwork though, and what better way to display art than on your sweet little one? I'm sure we'll get lots of use out of this hat.
