Celeste’s Lena Beanie was designed in honor of her friend Jamaica, who lost her 6 year battle with colon cancer at the young age of 25. Jamaica was a beautiful, generous, artistic young woman who loved her family, friends, and theatre. Her bright smile and incredible spirit continue to inspire everyone who knew her to treat each day as a gift, full of potential. The blue shade is to honor her, while the purple is in support of caregivers everywhere, including her amazing mother Mary Kay. A touch of magenta for warmth and love completes the cap.
