Hi, I'm Tans.
M&TB founder, mama,
lifestyle entrepreneur
and your biggest

I’m living proof that taking risks can lead
to good – scratch that, great – things.


Start at
the beginning

Wide Brim Hats 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”

- 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.
