Hello I am Fiona, the founder of Acorn. We are a family owned business based in Melbourne, Australia. I started Acorn back in 2009 after an elusive search for a cute beanie for my daughter. Initially focused on winter products we have now grown to include UPF50+ rated swim and sun hats plus lots of other cute accessories for little people.
We have a strong focus on ethical production and have worked with a women's collective who hand-knit most of our winter range since we began. We are also proud to support local artists such as Jacinta Weir from Two Little Ducklings who hand-draws many of our prints.
Amazing quality hats!
Amazing quality hats!
This is the second time purchasing these beautiful hats. (4 in total) They are gorgeous! Wear, wash and look fantastic. Love! Love! Love!
I’ve bought two willow hat for my girls. One is still too young to Walmart it but didn’t want to miss out the chance to match my girls. I love how it sits and looks on my eldest. If only they make one for adults then the whole family can match during picnic 🧺 time. I would highly recommend the willow hat 👒
This beanie is super soft and warm! According to my fussy daughter it’s “not itchy”, so to have a merino wool beanie that keeps her warm and she actually wants to wear - it’s a winner!
This hat fits perfectly with the adjustable tie at the back! Great broad brim to keep the sun off my little ones face too
I am so happy to have finally found some beautiful and high quality mittens that are truly appropriate for a toddler. Other options included gloves (impossible for tiny fingers) and flimsy mittens that would not help in the cold. I have recommended these mittens to a number of people
My daughter loves her beanie. It’s warm and such a beautiful pattern. With the matching mittens it’s a gorgeous set.
My daughter loves this beanie. I also bought the grey one for my son and they look so cute together. These are the first beanies they have worn without complaint. Toasty warm and perfect for our icy Hobart weather ❄️💙🤍
Super soft beanie! Looks great on, and we have purchased 4 now in different colours and love them. Thank you!
Perfect fit and so cute. Love that the lining isn't white - won't show the dirt. And also love that it came packaged in a biodegradable mail bag!!!
These hats are the best, they have a great size brim but are stiff enough to stay out of the toddlers face. The only ones he will wear, well worth the price!
My cousin was so excited to receive her newborn’s hat! Hand delivered by the Acorn team on the same day I bought it online. Very impressive! And very happy customer! 😊
Lovely design and very comfortable while protecting from sun! My kid finally wears a hat without complaining. Highly recommended.
Super cute, I love that it's adjustable so my little one will get lots of wear
