Danish Design focuses on materials, aesthetics and function. -And then Danish design has grown out of a strong craft tradition. Many Danes talk about the great Danish designers, Børge Mogensen, Poul Henningsen and Kaj Børgesen, but as time changes, the craft sector suffers from increasing stagnation both economically and in people’s minds. Hatters, bundlers and cap makers have been rescheduled or deleted from Denmark’s cultural heritage. -Rescheduled for digitization, outsourcing or completely forgotten. The craftsmanship part in many vocational and design educations has been belittled to a minimum, and this is despite the fact that Danish Design unequivocally requires good understanding of materials and good craftsmanship. Ordinary Danes think we live in a craft nation, but at the same time they do not know the name of their local tailor or leathersmith.
Wilgart wants to change that discourse. With a tradition of good craftsmanship, materials and simple aesthetic grip, we want to make Danish headgear world-renowned. Hand-sewn caps produced in Scandinavia are Wilgart’s landmarks. Det Silas’ store passion for håndværket og ønsket om at levere en unik oplevelse der er grundstoffet i en rigtig Wilgart cap. Muligheden for at skræddersy en cap, en sixpence, baseball cap eller flatcap, så den passer netop dine hovedmål.
