Behind the scenes

From hanna kids, to hanna moms

There is something truly undeniable about the connection between mothers. We face experiences no one else really does. From the first welcome into the world, the the first night away.... all the way to when the kids are no longer kids, but taking the lessons you’ve taught them into the real world. Kids have changed our lives over and over again. We spend so much time figuring out the “right” way to raise a child, but deep down we are growing right there with them. So when it comes to Mother's day, and what it means to be a mother, we want to know: what has your child taught you?

On What Olive taught her: "Wonder.  It is easy for me to get stuck in “go” mode and Olive is reteaching me how important it is to slow down and ponder the little things - a small flower in the grass or a ladybug on a leaf!" 

On her fav pieces: "All of them, but if I had to pick, it would be a tossup between the pajamas and the twirl dresses! My favorites are the Love, Hanna Pima Cotton pajama sets…they are just so soft and comfy!"

Technical Designer

All about perspective: "having children has taught me perspective. In the times I have been the most frustrated as a parent, I would look into her big pleading eyes and realize that I need to see the situation from her point of view. She may be 3, but she’s a whole person and her wants matter, I can still be her leader without being totalitarian. If there is less perceived power, there are fewer power struggles. Also, always, always have snacks. Or face the hangry consequences."

What Robin + Audrey love doing together: "We turn everything into an adventure- there are grocery store adventures, Target adventures, park adventures…" 

On their fave pieces: "Her favorite pieces are the tulle skirts, for a while she wore a skirt with absolutely everything, even the long johns. She loves that she gets to wear Minnie Mouse, I love that it’s a classic yet fun Minnie Mouse that is different than and a higher quality. My favorite pieces are the women’s long johns. They are super comfortable and the kids love it when we all match!"

Human Resources

A common theme— patience: "For me, Emery has taught me patience and how to love deeper than I ever imagined my heart could!  She has taught me how precious time is with her and as a working mom sometimes it is easy to get off track.  I always take the time to remember to slow down and focus on what’s most important which is her and her soon to be baby brother!" 

On Mother's Day Traditions: We normally do breakfast or brunch as a family and also include my mom (Emery’s grandma). Depending on the weather we enjoy going to the park or our local farmers market to pick up some fresh flower bouquets.

On Darcy's fav pieces for Emery: "For her I love our twirl dresses.  They are so soft and comfortable while still being super cute and fun with a little flare!  I also love our bike shorts to go under all her dresses.  They are the perfect length and let her still play and be a kid while wearing dress of just to match with a cute tee.  For me I love our Elisabet dresses and anything from our Pima cotton collection!!"

On what being mother taught her:

Being present + Patience: "As parents we strive to be the best we can possibly be and take care of everything all at the same time but realizing to take it one minute at a time has been the best learning experience for me as it goes way too fast!" 

Her favorite hannas:

#hannajams, unders + play dresses: "The stripe breezy dress she loved since we matched and it’s an easy wear. For me, I could wear the women’s dresses all day long, every day."

Letters from you...

Spreading the love and being there for families and kids means everything to us. Thank you for always sharing your love stories, Hanna family. When we hear you tell us that your hannas have lasted through every kid we know we have done our job right. This is a little series to share the love, and feature some of our favorite letters you’ve sent.

“I cannot explain the feeling of putting my daughter in these clothes. Fore years I have had trouble finding clothes that fit her perfectly. She has never been the same size on top and bottom, she likes nothing tight, her arms are too short for every long sleeve shirt and in 2015 when she was diagnosed with cancer and had to start taking steroids it all got harder. No shirts have been fitting her at all. These clothes are so beautifully made, soft and appropriate for little girls. She is having a hard time walking so she scoots and can do that so easily in these clothes. Every penny is worth it to me to know she is as comfortable as she is cute!! Thank you.” @kfurtado327

“I relate to this so much. As a kid i couldn’t wear anything with seams or tags or buttons or fabrics that felt any bit scratchy. Everything bothered my super sensitive skin. So my mom built my wardrobe from @happyhannas — pjs and sweats and shirts and those super soft tights. It was the only clothing that actually felt good to me. Now, I buy hannas for my nieces and nephews and all my friends kids. It’s so satisfying to pass down love for the brand that literally got me though childhood without having daily ‘it doesn’t feel good!’ meltdowns.” @iamlizolson
