VINYL CAP - the future of caps

VINYL CAP - the key points
VINYL CAP - the key points

We are about to renew the headwear industry by introducing a brand new type of cap to the market, the VINYL CAP.

Team & Mission

Fabian and Wolfgang first started working together while their study (Master of Engineering). The last two years they built up Degree Clothing, a fair fashion brand from Augsburg/ Germany. Always hungry to create new products with an eco-friendly impact, they invented the world´s first VINYL CAP.

VINYL CAP - the team.

While looking for an ecofriendly alternative for the briminlet, we designed this cap and started to recycle a variety of materials. As we saw the vinyl we were like "fuck, this looks pretty awesome!".

Because we love music, we take old and scratched Vinyl to cut them. Gutted them in a high-precision CNC based milling machine and linked with a specially developed glue. After this the brim was ready to be sewn at the cap.

The VINYL CAP is made out of organic cotton, is produced and traded under fair and sustainable conditions, produced in the EU.

At the beginning we offer a 6 and a 5-panel version of the VINYL CAP in "classic black". If we reach 18´000 € you can choose "melange grey" as a second color. At a sum of 40´000 € we will create a special all-over print for the VINYL CAP.

Each VINYL CAP is an unique piece of art, with ramdomized discs and a Kickstarter serialnumber sewed inside. The materials are out of organic cotton dyed in four different colors and one secret allover-print. We already patented the VINYL CAP to be sure that you guys only get the best quality for your support.

Risks and challenges

What could be?

During developing the Vinyl-Cap we learned a lot about the material characteristics and it´s behaviours. We managed to connect the vinyls without soften or solidify them, we also developed the mixture of different glues, textiles, heatings and pressure so the vinyl can perfectly fit on the cap. Does not press the heat, breaks instantly, deform in the sun and still keep the Vinyl look original.

To produce a high quality cap we work with experienced companies in cutting and gluing as well as manufacturing caps. Except of the brim, which is recycled, we only use sustainable materials and companies with fair working conditions. As far as possible we use products which were build under GOTS certified conditions.

Moreover the cap is patented and the Vinyl-Cap is registered as a trademark.

All together we are optimally forearmed for the named requirements.
Let´s bring caps to the next level.
