Our Founder

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.
