So FYI, all the caps are made in small limited batches. What sort of batch? A mini production line batch of products.
The cut off each week is wed at 12pm, then caps are packed and sent out on fridays.
Why? This is for a few different reasons, to reduce fabric waste, to keep the whole brand sustainable & also just to keep costs low. For you and me. Right now in the fashion world fast vs slow is being talked about and understood more and more and The Capalog is firmly & definitely in the slow fashion party.
So wtf is the capalog??
Time to talk about the craft of cap making. Sorry what? Cap what? Is that a thing?
Well it is for me & I wanna share why I'm addicted to it. So I'm a milliner, i.e. hatmaker and pattern-cutting headwear is a pretty basic part of millinery. It's one of the first ways I learnt how to make hats, looking at the hats from a 2D angle in order to make the final shape out of flat fabrics & oooh are the possibilities are endless..
