ALL THE REWARDS WILL ARRIVE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

ValorisationLab. is brand specializing in creating headwear made of previously used or unusual materials and fabrics. We’ve launched our first campaign on Kickstarter this summer and successfully delivered 180 caps made of vintage scarves all over the world.

Project

Today we’re back to show you something even more exciting! We’ve found the luxurious material that was never used in clothing production before us.

Meet our BILLIARDS LINE – hats made of old billiard tablecloth.

Rewards

We created four different styles of hats: 

After our campaign is successfully funded you will be able to choose type of a billiard hat you want.

Sizing

All the hats (except for bucket hat) have leather strap on the back for size adjusting.

Particularity

Just imagine the number of wins and losses, jokes, bull sessions and heart to heart talks happened around those tables. If only our caps could talk they would tell a lot. So there is nothing strange that fabric keeps “memories” of the past days. You will find this “memories” on your hats: the small white dots – ball burns. 

With an excellent break shot, the cue ball approaches speeds of 25-30 mph. This can produce temperatures between the felt and cue ball to reach 250 degrees Celcius when the ball is in contact with the felt. 

Please note: number of ball burns on your particular hat may very.

Quality & Materials

Even though this fabrics were never purposed for wearing, it is made of top quality materials: approximately 80% of wool and 20% of nylon.

We used PU-leather (synthetic) for brims and genuine leather leftovers from shoes production for labels and straps. Pairing green felt and brown leather gives classy retro feel.

Risks and challenges

We've sourced enough materials and are planning to start production before the end of campaign. This way we guarantee all our backers delivery before the Christmas.
