Mariner Cap £65.00
The Mariner or Breton Cap is very popular at the moment. It is originally based on the Workers Cap or revolutionary cap made famous as the Lenin Cap and also worn by Tevya as the cap in Fiddler on the Roof. Made famous today by Kate Moss, but has been worn by John Lennon as his cap of choice. The Mariner cap is also a very close match to the Biker Cap worn by Marlon Brando in ‘The Wild One’. The Laird Mariner is made from premium grade wool felt, braiding, and stiffened peak with braid.
Much like Furfelt, Woolfelt is made in a very similar way, being a robust and warm edition to the hat family.
The wool we use is lambswool felt, double layered and with or without a lining.
Wool felt is a slightly less expensive fabric to produce yet has very similar benefits to Furfelt, being good in some rain and sturdy to the extreme.
Again as with furfelt, if the hat becomes muddy, it is important not to attempt to clean when still wet, rather wait until it is dry and use a Horse hair hat brush to wipe away the dirt – If there is still slight marks, use a slightly damp sponge and dap until clean and leave to dry naturally.
Always store in a cool, dry area – Above a wardrobe or in a hatbox.
