Brave words

“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”

- RAEGAN

Our purpose!

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.
