The NB Bob

But where does this popular hat called the Bob come from? The bob has its origins in the 1920s with the fashion of "boyish" hairstyles. The bob became prominent to complement these short hairstyles, as it suited them well by accentuating the face and gaze. It quickly became a symbol of the feminist movement, representing women’s emancipation and their desire to break social conventions associated with long hair. Worn by both women and men, it was often associated with a modern and progressive lifestyle. The bob experienced resurgences of popularity several times in the following decades. It became an emblematic accessory in certain cultural movements like the hip-hop scene of the 1980s and 1990s.
Why choose a bob for winter? This winter bob is made from sheep’s wool. It is designed to keep the head warm in cold weather, making it an ideal choice for outdoor strolls, city outings, and even long forest walks. With its wide brim, it also provides protection from light rains and sun rays. It is a modern, comfortable, and functional choice for keeping the head warm while staying active.
