This cap is stiff at first, but will slowly shape itself to your head and soften over time.
Cotton fabric is hand-stitched to dyed paper, then melted beeswax is brushed on and the hat is lightly baked. The wax then bonds the fibers of the hat and fabric, strengthening it and changing it’s materiality.
It’s water resistant, light, and warm.
It smells nice and will age well.
You can buy some beeswax and re-wax it some day if you need to.
Paper handmade in Japan, cap handmade in Melbourne, Australia.
