At Bronté we design women's en men's caps for all kinds of purposes and with various properties: for example, there are sun-resistant caps with high UV protection, caps with an extra wide visor, very light caps, etc.
The braided straw caps for women like Linda/B and Emma have wide peaks that provide shade and protect your skin and eyes from sunlight and heath. The visor of cap Emma offers SPF50 protection, while the crochet crown is airy. We select Italian and British fabrics for our range of summer cap. Our Italian linen are very lightweight and airy, making it very suitable as a summer cap. The Linton Tweeds are more glamorous and perfect for spring. You are happy to pick your summer cap out of your bag when the sun surprises you in spring and summer. For men, we use soft cotton and linen for our flat caps like Mark and newsboy caps like Rocky. There are also unisex baseball caps such as Bram that vary in character and appearance depending on the type of fabric. At Bronté we use linings made of natural fibers such as cotton or viscose for our caps.
Linton Tweed & Harris Tweed Caps.
Sometimes the fabric we've found is scarce and perfect for a quirky, fashionforward cap range, like the limited editionsLinton Tweeds caps. We like to combine a super casual look with a precious and stylish fabric, such as Linton Tweeds. We also use traditional Harris Tweeds in many colour variations and rich Italian wool for our winter cap styles such as Romee,Shipper and Bram. And for extreme winter hiking, we make dual purpose caps that protect against snow, rain, and cold weather.
Towards the end of the season, it's time to properly store your cap. Depending on the composition and make, you can wash your cap by hand or have it dry cleaned. For example, if you are washing a cotton cap, use mild shampoo or detergent in lukewarm water. Rinse the cap and remove the water by gently pressing the cap between two layers of a towel without distorting the sturdy brim of the cap. Put a small towel (20x20 cm) inside the hat, and fold it in the shape it used to be. Let it dry completely in an airy room. Once it's dry, put some tissue paper in the cap. Keep a clean cap in a closed plastic bag to prevent moths from eating holes in your cap.
