Fascinating Children’s Hats

In the book ‘ Fascinating Children’s Hats’ I take you on a trip in the wonder world of ethnographic children’s hats. The book is a tribute to the love of a mother for her child and the diversity of cultures.



about the book

  • The great passions in my life - children, travelling, photography, meeting people from other cultures and everything that hands can make - are unified in my collection of traditional children’s clothing.


    I began collecting in 2002, although for as long as I can remember, I have had a deep admiration for the skills that people demonstrate while making textiles.

    For various reasons the daily use of traditional clothing is fast disappearing all over the world. This is a pity as the clothing is very interesting and tells a lot about the culture of the people, who are wearing them. In this book we travel through the world and see in what way (mostly) mothers embellish their child’s hats in a protective way. Objects, patterns and materials were used both as a decoration and for the protection of the child.


    If you are interested in children, textiles, cultures, colourfull pictures, crafts and travelling this is a book you shouldn’t miss!


    I published the book myself. The proceeds of the book will go to Kumari Foundation (www.stichtingkumari.nl )who takes care of disabled children in Nepal.


    Next to the book I give lectures on the subject.
