To measure your hat size, wrap a tape measure around your head just above your ears. The tape should fit comfortably – not too tight. Round up to the nearest size.
If you have no tape measure, you can measure with a string, which you then measure with a ruler.

This cap is made in Sweden and built on a tradition that started already in the year 1885, when Carl Theodor Ericson, fourth generation hat maker, founded the C.Th Ericsons Hat Factory in Borlänge, Sweden.
Over the years, CTH’s high-quality headwear would become a part of Swedish cultural and industrial heritage. Today, almost 140 years later, we are still a family business, our hats are still manufactured by hand and we are still creating modern classics for future generations.
Not much has changed, really. And in that we take a lot of pride.
The baseball cap is probably the type of cap that people use the most today. It began to be used in the early 20th century to protect baseball players from the sun and has since become a very strong popular cultural symbol. It is made up of several sewn-together pieces of fabric, but has a tighter fit and a larger visor than, for example, the Newsboy cap.

Växbo Lin is one of the last remaining linen weaving mills in Sweden.
The most well preserved sites from the heydays of flax and linen production are found in Växbo. The small flax sheds and workshops in Trolldalen bear witness to the flax-growing peasantry’s utilisation of hydropower. Växbo Lin was founded on this cultural heritage site in 1989. At first, production was centred on the spinnery, but after a few years we began weaving as well. All our products consist of 100% linen.
In 2006 the current owners Hanna and Jacob purchased the factory and began further restoration. Their mission is that Växbo Lin will continue to develop, produce and market linen products while creating desire and value for both customer and worker, and to keep alive the handicraft tradition of linen-making, native to the Växbo region.
