Welcome to Me & The Brave - the home of wide brims, accessories and apparel for fearless souls.
Locally-designed & ethically-made pieces to help you look and feel your best, most authentic self.
'multi-passionate / linen obsessed / bookworm’
I'm living proof that taking risks can lead to good - scratch that, great - things.
Wide Brims are what we do best! There's a Charlie to suit every head, hair colour or style. It's the hat for the 'I'm not a hat person' person.
“I can’t begin to explain the sense of empowerment and ‘self’ wearing your hats has given me. I have had to ‘recreate’ myself and rebuild a life alone, and your hats have been a huge part of my journey. I have come into my own sense of style and who I am”
We’re proud to donate 5% of our monthly sales revenue to the Women’s Refuge ‘Gift a Safe Night’ programme.
This programme offers women a safe space, hot meals, child care and other much-needed support.
It's our way of helping New Zealand's most vulnerable women make brave decisions about the lives they want to live.
