Chic·a·dee is minimal, ethical, mama-made accessories for babies and tots. Our products are always lovingly knit by hand, using traditional knitting techniques, and thoughtfully designed for life on-the-go with little ones.
Chic·a·dee is the brainchild of creative and mother of one, Anne Hejsek. An American expat living a stone's throw from the Swiss Alps, Anne was determined to find the perfect winter hat for hikes with her baby: something that could keep the cold out of every precious nook of that sweet little face!
Her search led her back to a childhood hobby, knitting, and to classic Norwegian knitting patterns. A few tweaks and many stitches later, the Babyclava was born: a beautiful baby hat, which is wonderfully warm and practical, easy to put on, non-restricting to play or sleep, and not easy to be wiggled out of.
Made from pure merino wool, the Babyclave naturally regulates the temperature and prevents overheating. It is also machine washable.
Chic·a·dee is low-impact and high snugglibility. The brand focusses on traceable, ethical yarns, and have a zero-waste packaging pledge: nothing that comes from chic·a·dee ever has to end up in a landfill.
Besides the Babyclava, which is always on offer, chic·a·dee regularly rolls out new limited edition designs (such as stroller mittens, toys and gift sets) so it's always fun to check back and what's in store!
“These Babyclavas are just adorable! I love the way they frame baby's face.”
