I first met fashion designer Anastassia Gonye of Tuff Kookooshka while on vacation on Cape Cod back in 1999. At that time, she had just started her fledgling children’s clothing line focusing on charming winter hats, and was working — literally — from her kitchen table.
Gonye has come a long way from those early days! Today, the popular Tuff Kookooshka line of endearing winter hats, character coats, scarves and pullovers is sold in fine children’s stores and boutiques throughout the US and abroad, as well as at its online store.
Her instantly-recognizable pieces are highly sought after for their impeccable craftsmanship, appealing colors, and sweet designs. All of Gonye’s darling creations are handcrafted and produced in nearby Lawrence, Massachusetts.
My tops picks for children’s winter hats
One of my personal favorites include the Gabby Hat Cuddle Rose, shown above. This piece is the very definition of sweet. The Gabby Hat is made of super soft cuddle fleece with rosettes. (This fabric needs to be touched to believe how soft it is, plus it’s machine washable.) Sizes from three months to adult. Retail $32.95.
I also love the Vera Hat, pictured here in Malachite. The charming pillbox style hat mixes cozy fleece and luxurious wool boucle with pretty floral appliques. It’s machine washable on warm, but tumble dry low or lay flat to dry, since it contains wool boucle. Retail $32.95.
These winter hats would be absolute perfect holiday gifts! To see the entire line of must-have children’s mittens, scarves, character coats, pullovers, and the trademark winter hats that started it all, CLICK HERE.
