It all started with an idea
Wooden accessories started to become trendy. Besides wooden watches, sunglasses and bow ties, the only key piece missing was the wooden baseball cap.
First prototypes were produced
With the vision of developing a sustainable product, we focused on using only natural materials. The biggest challenge was shaping a solid material like wood into a three-dimensional, flexible object.
A long way of improvements
The first prototypes were slightly stiff and heavy. We kept experimenting with different materials and working methods. Finally, we created the first flexible woodencap made of wood, cotton, natural rubber glue and seams made of recycled PET bottles. Finally we got the process patented.
Machines and processes were developed
In order to offer the caps to the broad public, we needed to make the manufacturing more efficient. Therefore we developed customized machines to optimize the production process.
A high quality product is born!
After finalizing the concept of our edition1, the packaging and marketing campaign, our woodencap got awarded with the reddot award 2018 in the category of product design.
