About Us


Zooni’s Story

Zooni is inspired by our children, laughter, and childhood. When we learned that kids lose the majority of their body heat through their heads and saw that our own kids wouldn't keep anything itchy or tight on theirs, we knew we needed to create hats our little ones would actually WANT to wear, and that would bring back the F-U-N in FUNctional.

With this in mind, Melissa designed our very first hat, Kate’s Moss.

It was an instant hit! Everywhere we went, people laughed and smiled when they laid eyes on this distinctive shaggy hat. We knew we had something special – and so Zooni was born.

Thanks for your support!
