Hi Annie, thank you for this feedback! We're so sorry if it was unclear that this hat does not have earholes. We'll be sure to update the product description to reflect this information. We wanted to offer this option as an alternative to the floral print bucket hats, which do have earholes.
These Briar Baby x HV dolly bucket hats were made by our small local production team here in our Brooklyn workshop. The price point of this item reflects its handmade nature, the high quality organic fabric that we source, and the fact that we are committed to paying all of our employees a fair wage. It definitely costs more to make toys this way, but we feel strongly that it is the right way to run our business.
We absolutely want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you decide you would prefer to return this item for a refund, please feel to reach out to us at email@example.com and we'll be happy to assist!
