By Mama, for Mamas
Chic·a·dee is minimal, mama-made accessories for babies and tots. Our products are always lovingly knit 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 little one: something that could keep the cold out of every precious nook without restricting play or sleep or being wiggled out of or thrown or overheating or anything else her new-mommy brain could imagine. Oh, and it had to be beautiful. 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. It was the first of many knitting experiments that simplified and sweetened Anne's life with a baby. She started chic·a·dee to bring them to yours.
