Why are Bold Beanies Cancer Hats So Special?

For most it's the sheer sense of relief of having a soft comfortable hat that is snug enough to stay in place but not tight at all. One less thing to worry about when life can be difficult and complicated

Everyone loves the pretty and/or fun quality patterns and wide variety of customisable plains to match any outfit, style or mood. A style to suit everyone, day or night wear.

Bold Beanies hats are constructed from the highest quality thin stretchy natural cotton breathable Liberty Prints, famous for their beautiful designs and timeless patterns. Limited seams and with the label on the outside, give the wearer the most comfy fit and keep the head at an even temperature (warm in winter and cool in summer). Our head covers are sustainably made in the UK in a small factory on the borders of the UK and Wales. All Bold Beanies chemo sleep caps and headwear are all eco friendly products with a careful eye on carbon footprint. 

Our cancer hats are perfect to wear on their own during the day or night as a pretty night cap or layer up under scarves, head wraps helmets, hard hats to hijabs.

The idea for Bold Beanies was born out of necessity when Emilienne Rebel lost her hair at age 31 with chemotherapy treatment for grade 3 advanced breast cancer. Her head felt cold, especially at nigh-time when scarves would slip and woollen hats were itchy and too hot. As a younger person going through cancer she found the hair loss headwear available online too fussy and outdated and craved a simple, snug, breathable, comfortable hat which is easy to put on... but also something stylish and pretty to make her feel feminine again and keep covered up for her young family. She found her wig very uncomfortable and felt more self conscious wearing that head covering than anything else. Loosing her hair she felt very self conscious her whole face looked different having lost not just the hair on her head, but eyebrows and eyelashes too... not to mention puffy and bloated from the steroids. 

The Bold Beanies headwear range has extended to include Headscarves, Head Wraps, wonderful cancer Alopecia bouquet flower gifts and PICC line cover sleeves. All our cancer headwear is available for children, teenagers, ladies and men suffering from hair loss, hair thinning, Alopecia Areata or simply for those who just want to cover up and keep ears warm during outdoor sports or under all types of helmets, such as cycling or ski helmets and hard hats.

Emilienne prides herself on her business's caring customer service and will always do her best to accommodate personalisation requests.

Liberty Art Fabrics - Why are Liberty Print Cancer hats & scarves so special?

Liberty Art Fabrics - Why are Liberty Print Cancer hats & scarves so special?

I'm so proud to offer my Bold Beanies headwear in such beautiful quality Liberty prints. Simple, easy to wear and immaculately constructed cancer beanies, headscarves, head wraps and PICC covers made using these wonderful and uplifting prints from Liberty of London so quintessential British & with quintessential quirkiness.

As one of the best-known department stores in the UK, Liberty London offers a diverse range of products, but one of their staple products & absolute best sellers are their fabrics – specifically their cotton prints. Not surprising, then, is that the founder of Liberty London has his roots in fabric and Liberty has a great tradition and history spanning a period of over 80 years.

In the 1920s, Liberty began to produce miniature floral, paisley & abstract prints that became known as ‘Liberty Prints’ and the rest, as far as I am concerned, is history.

Englishman Arthur Lasenby Liberty began his career as an apprentice for a draper. He then took on a job at Farmer & Roger’s Great Shawl and Cloak Emporium – a position that set him on course of his life’s work. After ten years of work there, learning about textiles & other arts, he decided to branch out and open his own business in 1875, named ‘East India House’ where he solely sold Oriental imports – namely rugs, decorative objects and…fabrics!

In 1875 a small shop opened in Regent Street London called Liberty & Co. This was the dream of an Englishman Arthur Liberty, a man of great vision and artistic skills who until his death in 1917 played a leading part in the growth and achievements of a wonderful department store.

Arthur Liberty spent many years travelling to Eastern parts of the world gaining inspiration for the development of his store and he would bring home beautiful rugs and fabrics from these countries. He involved William Morris and other famous artists of the 19th century in the designing of rugs and materials. Some of these early designs are still used today.

New! - New Double Sided Jane Print Head Wraps

MEET JANE! New to the Bold Beanies Hats collect we have a new product and print, the Jane Double-Sided Head Wrap. 

You can layer the Jane hair wrap over any Bold Beanie cancer cap but we have to say, it looks especially good wrapped around the Jane Bold Beanie. This striking and fashionable small floral and leaf print is a mix of red, petrol blue, blue, taupe, coral and blush on a soft warm black background.

We love this print so much we've decided to offer the reversible side in two colours to compliment the print. Both colours show a little when tied print side up, so you can choose bright red for a pop of colour or a more subtle taupe. As a reversible product you can wear this head wrap in any direction (plain colour at the top!) which gives you lots more wrapping style options, but also very cost effective, affordable hair loss solution. Especially when budget is tight or as a space saver when travelling for example. Many different looks, with just one headwear product!

Made using the very best quality fabric to the highest standards, this Jane reversible head wrap will be the perfect addition to any woman's chemotherapy or alopecia hair loss collection. The stretchy fabric allows you to tie to the side, back or top leaving little or long lengths hanging down depending on how you tie it and your mood... mix it up every day!
