Acorn Kids

As a new Mum, Fiona Savaris (as we all do) loved putting her daughter Vienna in the pram each morning and taking a walk to one of their local parks. Exploring the great outdoors gave both a great feeling of adventure as well as fresh air and exercise.

But as the Melbourne winter set in, Fiona began an exploration of a new kind - an elusive search for a comfortable, warm and fun hat for Vienna to accompany them on those daily outings. Little did she know that her love for fashion, children and ethical trade would soon come together as Acorn.

With nothing available to suit her tastes and sensibilities, Fiona decided to draw on her 10 years experience in fashion and create her own children's label specialising in hats, scarves and mittens.

Many successful seasons later, Fiona still loves the joy that comes with seeing her ideas transformed into beautiful beanies and seeing these out and about; as well as receiving feedback and photos from other mothers as smitten with the product as she is.

She is also grateful for the opportunity to connect with a wider community of women through ethical and fair trade practices - with all but a small number of styles being hand-made.

Fiona remains passionate and committed to creating beautiful products to be cherished by children and parents alike and to the Acorn motto of bringing a little piece of happiness to the heads of little people and a smile to all the big people passing by.
