The Way To A Man's (or Woman's) Heart Is Thru The Wool
A sentiment to which Lili of Bayleaf Studio most likely would agree. All of her hats, cowls and capes are made from either high-quality merino, cashmere or alpaca wools or organic cotton. Her design range is well thought out, too - cool + crisp to femine + flouncy - there's a style for anyone with a cold head.
Also, Bayleaf Studio's front page is genius - clever, of course, but also instilling a sense of design, fortitude, quality + class. Etsy shops that brand themselves as actual shops within a collective stand out - 3 Potato 4 comes easily to mind - becaus they brand it that way. Bayleaf Studio's defintely set the bar higher, but that sense of branding by design could/should be adopted by any maker wanting to elevate their own shop's status.
Thanks to Lili fr Bayleaf Studio for great design. Thanks to Cool Hunting for the original story.
