Hello! We’re Harry and Zanna and we’ve been running Papio Press together for four years. In that time we’ve graduated from our illustration BA at University, gotten married, moved to Cornwall, had a baby, written a book, and of course grown what started as a part-time passion project into a fully fledged business that supports our little family.
At Papio Press our main aim is to take everyday products and make them beautiful and unique! We’re super inspired by nature and love to play with colour. Our illustration background means each design has it’s own little story, making them super magical and wonderfully whimsical. Our online store began with a range of art prints and stationery, but over the last year we’ve been wanting to expand further into accessories and apparel.
Which is why we need your help! We want to create a range of gorgeous embroidered beanies. After looking for a new winter hat last year we couldn’t find anything unique. Shop after shop presented us with the same plain beanies, no patterns, no designs, nothing that made any of the hats special. So we’ve created our own, and with your support we can get them made, and you can be the first to own one of these gorgeous hats.
Each hat has a different design embroidered into it with animals, florals, moons and stars! Something unique to match your personality and spirit. All of our hats are designed and embroidered here in the UK.
We've carefully selected gorgeous colour palettes, so that the threads on each hat stand out and compliment the hat's base colour. For this reason the designs are not currently interchangeable on the colours of hats, and also because it would cost a huge amount to get each design on each different hat colour.
Although the hats come in one size they fit many heads! We've tried them on everyone from Harry (who has a very large head) to our nine year old niece, and the hat has fitted everyone - just in slightly different ways. If you have a very small head the hat will have a slouchy fit, and if your head is on the bigger side then it'll have a snug fit. Anything in between will look like our lifestyle photos.

What better way to thank you all for your pledges than with more beautiful hat designs to choose from?! So we created this stretch goal with three more stunning hats, and we'll be able to make these too if we hit £6000!

Risks and challenges
We've done a lot of research and preparation to make sure this Kickstarter project runs as smoothly as possible! We have been creating products for four years, and have worked with our chosen suppliers on many occasions and so know they are reliable. We have also received samples of all our products to assure the quality.
However, there is always a possibility of delays in production. If this happens then we will let all our backers know our new schedule as quickly as possible. It is our highest priority to get your products out to you as soon as we can!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
