Sashiko Ballcap - custom order


Paper ball cap.

This is a custom order, so we can discuss colour, dye, stitching, and other details with you, or you can choose something similar to what we’ve already made. 

This cap is firm at first, but will slowly shape itself to your head and soften over time. It’s durable and strong.

Cotton fabric is sashiko-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.

Paper handmade in Japan, cap handmade in Melbourne, Australia.
