Our leather caps are handcrafted with waxed cotton from the UK and with our 100% premium tanned leather from Spain. The reason why we use waxed cotton for manufacturing our leather caps is very simple. The quality and the result obtained in the manufacturing of each product is incomparable. The concept of the waxed cotton was originally developed in the early XV century by sailors of the time. Making our caps with material as noble as British waxed cotton and linking it with the history of the first uses of this material, makes us completely crazy.
The North Sea Scottish Herring fleets, which operated from the ports on the east coast, began treating the linen cloth with fish oils and animal fats in an attempt to waterproof their sails, keeping them light and efficient. When any of these sails were broken by use, their pieces were used as layers to withstand strong winds and sea mist, keeping sailors warm and dry. These layers were the precursor of the famous fisherman's raincoat. We consider that this fabric, together with our leather, is the best connecting threat between the 2 brands since it combines many of the values that represent us.
