Olives are Dropping

Written by Benjamin Antoni Andersen Published on March 17, 2019 in News Reel Designer and instigator of Red Hat Factory, constantly hungry for mountainous adventures.

The Olive Red Hat Factory beanie has been long expected by many. After all, Red Hat Factory’s roots are firmly planted in the adventure of the green-dyed outdoors, and it only makes sense to match that color in our wooly apparel.

We have been purposefully slow to expand, since the red knit cap, as the foundational idea of the company had to be there alone and have its time in the spotlight before getting any siblings.

Red Hat Factory is after all not just any beanie collection, but a parlor of carefully hand knit beanies that takes about four hours of meticulous crafting per piece. We don’t just want to drop something with no care.

In 2018, the color expansion started with a couple of grays, which are not really colors but what we like to call non-saturated versions of the red (wink wink), and then a few more bold Limited Editions. But now that Red Hat Factory brings in the first actual color into the base collection, what better color to come first than the green of nature itself.

Say hello to the Olive, available in all our models.

Limited Edition Coral & Deep Sea Green Caps

We wanted to try something new, so we did.

It’s my favorite way of trying new things.

We made one of each of our beanie models in Coral and Deep Sea Green. So all in all, there are 6 beanies. One of each type in each color. You can only get them through the Facebook shop.

So if you’re into Coral or Deep Sea Green, strike fast!

Black is Back!

The colors are coming! Well… shades of gray really.

Red Hat Factory started with… you guessed it… red hats — or in more technical terms, red knit caps. Every hat is hand knit, and the factory part of the name is none other than my mother. You should see her as she keeps those knitting needles active all day, whether she travels, sits at home or works. Millennials have their smart phones, my mother have her knitting needles and her yarn basket.

Because Red Hat Factory was born through the idea of the red hat as the ultimate adventurers apparel, we held back on producing more colors, since we felt it important to let the company have a season of being what it was conceived as. But now that it’s established what we are and why we are the Red Hat Factory, the time to expand has come.

For starters we are adding two shades of gray to the original red, but more is already in the making. We are keeping a vote active over at our Instagram account. You can still find it in the highlights on top of the profile — @redhatfactory.

Go vote!


Before releasing the Black and Light Gray we went out with friend and incredibly skilled photographer Eleonora Leka, and Alfred and Sophia as models, to get some dope shots.

I’m just warning you. They have the photo genes. Don’t blame me if you end up starstruck.

Light, light gray!

Hope you enjoy the new shades, and that you take a quick round through our Insta story to vote! You will definitely see more of these guys on our Insta and Facebook in the future.
