Hanky Panky

tie one on!

Mom’s schnoz, Dad’s bald spot. When it comes to your baby’s inheritance, certain things are beyond your control.

One thing your bundle won’t mind coming into: an Heirloom baby bonnet.

Jeweler Kathleen Whitaker crafts one-of-a-kind handmade caps from vintage linen and poplin hankies for your bambino’s big debut from the hospital. Each one is laundered, ironed, then stitched with organic cotton thread and silk ribbon.

The tiny, old-fashioned chapeaus come wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and muslin pouches for safekeeping until your pride and joy is ready to tie the knot. With a few snips, the topper becomes a “something old” bridal hanky.

Pass it on.
