This lightweight headgear is made of pure new wool.
On the inside the cap has a soft black viscose lining. The style is called Sailor cap, or among musicians it’s also refereed to as a Jazz cap. The sailorcap has no brim, thus very useful on the windy oceans of the world. Sometimes also refered to as the dockers cap, the foremen cap or the micki hat. When one style of headwear gets so many different names as time goes by, you know it’s an old classic for sure.
This cap is handmade in Germany by my master Herr Bullmann.
He is the craftsman from who Wilgart have been learning how to make headwear. Bullmann is the only capmaker left in his region in the northern of Germany, Bayern. Wilgart is keeping exclussive knowhow in headwear making and best practice craftsmanship alive through the same practice as the old Master. Wilgart is collaborating with Master Bullmann on various projects.
