#5: Love Heart Beret ($45AUD) by Frances Island ( @francesislandberet

I absolutely love all the adorable berets Frances makes in her home studio in Newtown, Sydney. She is so talented, handmaking all of her berets to order, and all of them are made with 100% wool! I personally own quite a collection of her designs already and it is quite hard to stop collecting more 😍

About the artist:

"When I was in university, I was attracted to exploring the world. I was allured by the experience of different cultures, views and foods. And so supporting myself to travel became my goal. My hobby is handmade crafts and designs and I began to create my first beret to sell online. I was deeply surprised that it sold and thus the journey of starting my first shop to sell handmade berets began.

From then I started to travel and I have endless wonderful experiences that influence my designs. Now, handmade craft and designs are a a part of my life."

About the product:

"Feeling lovely? Or are you the Queen of Hearts? This beret is when you're just as cute as cupid. It's also a warm, cute gift to your friends to show your love to them!"

Whether it’s who wears the design or someone they pass – brightening a day, catching an eye and a smile is what the brand loves to do.
