“Thank you so much for offering affordable hats for cancer patients. I took it really hard when I lost my hair. I bought a turban at a local store and not only was it expensive but it was heavy, hard to manage and gave me headaches. I found your site and tried the sleep caps. The material is so soft and lightweight I felt like I was wearing nothing. I have to boys in elementary school and it was hard for them to see mommy without hair. These hats were great. I also ordered two hats from the topsy too collection as well as additional scarves. These hats are so comfortable especially for when I go to chemo.It is also a great change when my wig gets hot and itchy. The hat is actually cooler than the wig. I am so glad I found your site. All the other sites I found geared to cancer patients had very expensive hats that were too complicated. Shipping was fast too.” —Teresa
“I just spoke with you on the phone. You are sending my grand niece a couple of caps. Your kindness has really touched me. It has been a very difficult couple of weeks. We are waiting to get lab results back on her younger sisters, as they have been having some of the same symptoms Mikaela had. To think that someone who doesn’t even know her is willing to help us love her. Thank you so much. God bless you.” —Terri
TOPSY TURBAN’S DESIGN STUDIO Has spent fifteen years hand-crafting headwear for people experiencing hair loss. Most are made of comfortable cotton and one size fits most everyone. We provide comfort and security as well as fashion during difficult times. All our products are hand-made right here in our California studio. All our designs are generously cut and all come with either sewn-in or separate elastic to hold them securely and comfortably on the head.
TOPSY TURBAN Offers more than just hats and turbans to cover up the hair loss of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or those with alopecia or other medical hair loss conditions. Our number one priority is to make cancer patients feel good about themselves and look good during bad hair days and throughout the entire time of their hair loss. Chemotherapy turbans are always thought of as a hair-loss cover-up. Here at our Topsy Turban Design Studios we have created stylish head covers, sleep caps, morning coffee caps, answering the door scarves, shopping hats, sun hats and best of all, elegant travel wear. We know that cancer patients need comfortable, practical, affordable, washable head wear while experiencing treatment which may include chemotherapy. We have much-needed creative solutions for difficult times.
TOPSY TURBAN’S UNIQUE DESIGNS and variety of fabrics, plus low prices, allow women a selection of cover-ups from casual head covers, our new Elegance scarves, practical sleep caps and Headbands. Simplicity are soft caps designed for total comfort. Optional contrasting scarves can be purchased to give a variety of looks. Our Shady Lady sun hats protect the face, neck and back an important consideration when undergoing chemotherapy. Our sleep caps come in a feminine lacy style and a simple cotton knit version that keeps the head warm at night, but isn’t too hot for daytime use. All our styles are easy to wear and easy to care for. Most are made of soft, cool cotton, some of absorbent gauze and one size fits all. Some scarves have a special elastic design so no tying is necessary. All of this is no accident.
It is the life’s work of Tyler Kjar, who’s clarity of thoughts and concern for cancer patients shows plainly in the creative products he continues to provide.
