What’s in a name?

Bahadu - it’s a different kind of name for a different kind of company.

A company founded by three Midwestern women who were not only searching for a stylish baseball hat that fit , but a way to make a difference.

A company with the simple mission of designing hats exclusively for women, and a grand vision of creating a community where women could recognize their unique value and celebrate their individuality.

A company that believes that everyone can make a difference by just taking action.  And so, while most companies have core values or guiding principles, at Bahadu we have a to-do list. 
  • Be Kind
  • Make Someone’s Day
  • Live in the Moment
  • Practice Gratitude
  • Have Fun

So, what’s in a name?  We hope it’s a simple inspiration that every woman can embrace. 

Bahadu…Be Happy Doing You!

Back in October, while getting ready to head to O’Hare airport, I was wishing that I had a stylish baseball hat that actually fit my head, so I didn’t have to spend the time and hassle of doing my hair. 

While sitting at the airport, I noticed so many women who had the same idea, but their limited options fell short of being stylish or fitting well.  At that moment, I texted my sister Michelle and her best friend Beth -  “baseball hats designed exclusively for women”.

The very next day we jumped on the phone and discussed that as woman we all wear many hats, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, co-worker, volunteer so wasn’t it about time we finally had one that fit our head and our style.  And the rest is history.
