Waxed Cotton Six Panel Cap, SMALL 55-56CM (sand.)
Handmade six panel cap. Made from superb waxed cotton this traditional fabric is extremely practical and looks better the more it is worn developing a lovely vintage look.
'Waxed cotton is, as the name suggests, cotton impregnated with a paraffin based wax, woven into a cloth. Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s, the product,which originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland, became widely used by many for waterproofing.' (Wikipedia)
The two tone peak now features a triple thickness hand cut leather insert to create a great strong shape. (The leather gives a much higher quality feel than the standard plastic inserts and will mould to the individual for a better fit.) And at the back the caps are elasticated to keep it snug.
It is lined in floral William Morris cotton (for a real period feel) and look superb up against waxed cotton.
'William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production.' (Wikipedia.)
