Yamato Indigo Dyed Upcycled Cotton Watchcap
* Each indigo dyed watchcap has been individually dyed, meaning no one hat will be exactly like another and may not appear exactly as pictured in photos online. This provides each hat with a unique one-of-a-kind look.
What is Eco-cotton? Eco-cotton is a blend of reclaimed cotton fibers from discarded garment scraps combined with a small amount of nylon made from the RPET process of recycling PET bottles into fiber. In addition, zero dyes or chemicals are used in the process of creating such vibrant colors from what would otherwise be textile waste.
Yamato Indigo is a Japanese natural-blend indigo powder dye developed by Aikuma Senryo, a company founded in 1818 in Tokyo. The company was originally a Chinese herbal apothecary and later began supplying dyeing supplies.
Indigo dyed garments have a tendency to bleed and fade when washed. To avoid this, spot clean by hand as needed. Lay flat to dry.
Knit in Waterloo, NY by our friends at Mozaic. Finished in Brooklyn.
Size & Fit
Length: 9-10 Inches (without fold)
Knit cotton is prone to stretch so if your hat feels a bit tight when you receive it, just a little wear will allow it to adjust to your head. If you feel your hat starts to loosen over time, you can give it a hand-wash in warm water, lay it flat to dry, and it should spring right back. Cotton is a lighter material, so these hats are meant to be worn as transitional hats. If you would prefer a warmer option, take a look at our Upcycled Wool Watchcaps!
The watchcap is a style that's existed for well over 100 years, though it's most commonly associated with WWII US Navy personnel. A watchcap is a shorter hat, traditionally meant to be worn folded above the ears. However, you can also wear it unfolded, rolled, double-folded, etc.
