Zaini hats in the BB house AGAIN!

Big Brother on Channel 5 kick started about a month ago and boy did it hit our screens with a BANG.

13 new housemates, new house and all sorts of shenanigans going on already. Our 'fav' housemate, Conor, took in a couple of beanies with him and it just so happened one of them was our very own 'Gigha' Zaini hat. Get in....

And even when he wasn't wearing it - he had it hung up nicely behind his bed as below:

Good Luck Conor - we're all rooting for you!

Zaini welcome Squash Falconer as one of our sponsors....

Squash Falconer explains of her recent collaboration with Zaini ski hats

A couple of years ago I was at the London Ski Show and my sister appeared with a fantastic beanie. She had just purchased it from a girl who was standing at the show with her own brand of hand-made beanie hats.

It was a Zaini hat. In the months following, particularly when I was in the Alps, I saw a lot more of these bright and colourful beanies.. Then last year at the Ski Show I went to visit the much larger Zaini stand and was really pleased to meet Miranda Harper – the woman behind the beanie! I love stories like this. Miranda through hard work, commitment, passion and determination created her own successful business. She went for it and now look at where she is. I also love that it was her Grandma who taught her to crochet hats in the first place and who was there to help when the orders came flying in. A Zaini beanie became my hat of choice and now to my delight I am working with Miranda and her hats will be joining me, not only on my future adventures, but also regularly on my head day to day … because they’re really cool and I love wearing them!

We welcome Squash on board and are very excited about supporting all her amazing adventures. Squash has not only climbed Mount Everest but also paraglided off Mount Blanc and is the worlds highest ever bum boarder!

Team Evolution's testimonial on Zaini...

Zaini proudly sponsor Team Evolution this season and here's what they have to say about us and our beanie hats:


This season for Team Evolution has been a warm one for us despite it currently being -20 on the pistes for our first run in the mornings. It’s all thanks to Zaini hats for supplying us with some rather cool hats for us to wear whilst doing what we do best, skiing fast! Our personalized Scarba hats and Seal headbands really do turn heads and have become an essential piece of kit for all Team Evolution athletes.Zaini is all about adding individuality, fun and colour to the lives of those wearing Zaini.
We at Team Evolution certainly never stop having fun! Yannick Green, Communications Director of Team Evolution has said, “Our minis to high flying juniors and coaching staff have commented on how well made the hats are, comfort and warmth of the products. Whether they be the hats or the headbands Zaini products are the headwear of choice by Team Evolution athletes.”Team Evolution works as part of a structured, professional Alpine Academy programme, whilst providing educational support and personal development.
The Team Evolution setup supplies unique and flexible annual training programmes to committed athletes, running individual programmes for mini's, children and junior racers. All programmes are individually designed to fit the needs of the athlete, and are based upon the Team Evolution philosophies, with proven results. Dependent on the goals of the trainee, execution of these programmes can vary from a minimum 10 week period, to supporting and mentoring athletes on a full-time basis over the course of several years.
Its no surprise that some of our athletes for the 2011/12 season are members of National Team programmes, and all are on the performance pathway towards achieving their specific athletic goals, whilst maintaining exceptional educational grades.
In a sport such as Alpine Skiing, which is just as mentally tough as physically demanding Zaini hats offer the comfort for Team Evolution when out and about and we are ever grateful to be wearing the hats and headbands this year!

The Huffington Post picks up on the growing Zaini trend in America. 'On a similar snuggly note, these slouchy-knit, boy band fav Zaini hats that JLS et al are rarely seen without, are a great unisex accessory and as they're acrylic, not only are they totally affordable but you can remove all traces of your sneaky loan by bunging them straight in the washing machine' We are going global!
