Haute Tots Review & Giveaway (Closed)
Angela's story is very similar to many other mommy businesses that have started out in the home. She also began crocheting hats for her own little one when she wasn't able to find what she was looking for in baby stores. After receiving compliments on her adorable hats, she began taking orders and couldn't keep up with the demand on her own. Now, she has a hard-working team of mommies in China helping out and Haute Tots stays in constant communication with these women to ensure they are rewarded for a job well done. Each hat tag says 'Home Made by Hand in China' so these are truly still handmade hats. You can find their line of adorable hats in a variety of styles and colours in baby stores all across Canada. There is a store locator on their website to find a store near you. Their website is http://hautetots.ca/.
Now to the hat itself. It is very soft and the flower is not a clip-on type. It's actually crocheted into the hat but only onto the outside of the hat so there aren't any annoying bumps or strings rubbing against baby's head. I'm not a crocheting expert but it's definitely solidly made and I can see it being able to handle a lot of wear and hold up very well. As for washing, the tags says "gentle wash - dry flat". Of course, little girls don't get dirty anyway so I'm sure this won't be a problem, right?! Last but not least, it's adorable and I think it looks lovely on my baby girl. I can't wait to try it on her with different outfits.
As I mentioned earlier, there are a variety of colours and styles available for boys and girls and Haute Tots is going to give away one of their hats to one lucky winner! The winner will have their choice of colour and style.
