We are in love with each of their unique, artistic designs which look like little works of art to be worn on your head. And it comes to no shock that the company was founded by a visual artist who hand paints each one.

With different price points for each design, we must warn you that they don't come at a cheap price. Here are a few of our favourite helmets of theirs, would you wear any of these bold designs?
