myz started as an idea while searching for hats for Gemma’s own two children. She wanted quality hats that were trendy, non-kiddy, unisex, only used natural fibres and were functional.
As a patternmaker by trade and having worked with various high-end designers over the past 10 years Gemma knew she could get the fit of the hat just right. What she didn’t realise is how much of a perfectionist she had become and just how many samples it would take for her to be 100% happy with the hats! There has been plenty of love, sweat and tears over the design and fit of the hats.
Absolutely hating waste in all its forms, it was important to Gemma to design hats in expectation that they will be passed onto siblings or friends. There is no compromise on quality, with each aspect of the design and materials carefully thought through. Gender neutral colours are a hallmark, although some dusty pinks have somehow snuck into the ranges! Gemma is starting to become obsessed with pink on boys so who knows what's around the corner! Watch this space.
With sustainability a focus for myz, cotton and linens are used across the range. These natural fibres are breathable, stylish and will keep your kids comfortable in any weather. They are also biodegradable.
myz’s new winter colour palette consists of muted tones with accents of black. The winter hats are lined in the softest, fluffiest jumbo corduroy keeping those little heads warm in the cold winter. Inspiration has been taken from the classic bonnet but of course has the myz signature twist taking them from classic to ultra-trendy.
Recently added to the product range are animal ear headbands, re-usable makeup remover pads and scrunchies. Small off cuts of fabric are used for the re-usable makeup pads, medium off cuts for the animal ears and larger pieces of left over fabric for the scrunchies.
