Norwegian Handicraft

We are crafting hand knitted red explorer caps together with my mom in Norway—on the Norwegian south coast to be exact.

Growing up, I always wore hand crafted, woolen wearables, and did not at all realize the value of such gifts—until I grew old enough to understand that my mother is in possession of a legendary crafting skill, passed from generation to generation. Red Hat Factory grew out of this realization.

Every Red Hat Factory cap is hand knit in about two work hours and ingrained with the years of heritage that goes into each and every product.

Every cap is quality controlled by my mother, and we have a lifetime guarantee on stitches coming loose, or threads snapping from years of wear.

An investment in one of our caps is a lifetime investment. It will stay with you through rain and sun, and only gain more character as it ages.

Washing and Care

Our hats are 80% pure sheep wool, handpicked from South America and imported to a Norwegian mill, where it is processed. The South American sheep are chosen over the Norwegian ones, because the wooly cousins down south yield just a bit softer wool.

After more than a year of testing, we wanted to go as natural and classic as we could, but decided to keep some of the perks of 20% nylon.
