Welcome to Me & the Brave

Welcome to Me & The Brave - the home of purposefully curated lifestyle products, resources & inspiration for fearless souls.    

Hats were just the beginning -

today we’re all about brave goods, big dreams, real talk & female empowerment.

Founded in 2018, Me & The Brave is all about empowerment.

What started as a small hat label now encompasses an ever-growing range of quality curated lifestyle products and tools to inspire women across the globe to make brave decisions.

Whether you’re navigating motherhood, business, relationships, personal development or something else entirely, we’re here to help you embrace your most fearless and authentic self. And look damn good while doing it.

Meet our Founder Tans

Hey you, Tans here. I’m a wife, mum of 2, photographer, creative, fan of a cheeky G&T and living proof that taking risks can lead to good - scratch that, great - things.

Since quitting my corporate job and launching M&TB, I’ve connected with women from all walks of life who want to be brave, take chances, and choose adventure. Reckon you might be one of us? I’ve got two words for you: welcome home.

Wear your brave

Our effortlessly cool hats, necklaces, sweaters & vintage t-shirts are designed to make you feel unstoppable.

Most items come in both adult and kids sizes too, so everyone in your crew is covered! 

High quality + inherently conscious

Since launching our first wide brim (The Charlie) back in 2018, we work with only the best certified suppliers who operate in safe, supportive and healthy conditions.

Our products are designed by Tans here in Papamoa, and ethically made by skilled artisans in New Zealand, the US and China.

“I can’t begin to explain the sense of empowerment and ‘self’ wearing your hats has given me. I have had to ‘recreate’ myself and rebuild a life alone, and your hats have been a huge part of my journey. I have come into my own sense of style and who I am”
