One day at a time...

One day at a time...

Hello to all, 

I hope this message finds you safe. In these unprecedented times, whilst I personally feel the Bold Beanies website and products are a necessity for many, they could be considered as non-essential. However, I'm doing everything I can to preserve jobs and morale of our small factory team and continue to offer our comfy, stylish cancer hair loss headwear as well as other chemo Alopecia products and gifts to those that need them... enabling loved ones to show they care and offer practical help from a distance. 

Please allow extra time for orders to be processed and delivered whilst we adapt to a new way of working and take into account the personal family commitments of our staff and the government regulations. We are working to the strict sanitary guidelines as well as contactless delivery.

Please understand that at this current time, we are unable to offer customisation for our cancer hair loss headwear and gifts. Customers will be notified quickly of any issues with the delivery of their order.

Our thoughts are with the amazing NHS and all medical staff, carers and helpers and countless key workers across the country whilst we all work together to support them against the Covid19 Coronovirus. 

Let us seize this strange suspended moment in time together as a call to love and to HOPE. A moment to look at the world differently and imagine a better tomorrow.

I'm offering 50 complimentary copies of my book HOPE to the first 50 people to email info@boldbeanies.co.uk sharing with me what hope means to them at this difficult time.

Keep Safe, Stay At Home and kindest regards from my family to yours, Emilienne X

Why are Bold Beanies Cancer Hats So Special?

Posted by Emilienne Rebel on

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.
