Reversible Bob Competition #makemyhat

For our collaboration series of 2021 we are running a competition to find the most creative beautiful designs to produce reversible bobs. This is an opportunity to rethink bobs, play with prints and colours with the two sides of the hat (since it is reversible) and bring something fresh and trendy to the market.
We are looking for unique reversible bob designs to print onto our eco shorts (100% recycled NEWLIFE®) and create exciting reversible bobs. The winning designer will have the opportunity to collaborate with us, and receive a free example of his reversible bob.
