MMM: Ershware hats – hipster headgear for kids

Whether they like them or not, hats are a necessary part of the kid winter uniform. I usually have to go for the style with ties for Lila as it would be on for 0.6 seconds otherwise. Charlie is a little more tolerant, but only likes a beanie these days.

But I’ve  found a new brand on Etsy that appeals to the sensible they-will-keep-them-warm mother in me, but also are quirky enough to make sure the kids are happy wearing them.

Ershware was set up at the end of last year by Ashley Thorner, an Art & Design grad who had started making hats, accessories and screen-prints for her son and created the store after seeing the way people reacted to them.

Most of the fabrics are upcycled from well-loved t-shirts (check out the Foo Fighters hats on the site!), because it’s eco-friendly, soft and has a history to it.

Based in Washington, USA, Ashley says her hats are great in the cold, rainy weather – so perfect for grey UK skies.

Check out Ashley’s other designs here – she also takes orders if you have a special request.
