A Flat cap also called Scally cap, Ivy cap or Golf cap has a history far back in time. As early as the 14th century, it was used in England and in the south of Italy.
At the beginning of the 20th century, when all men wore some type of headwwear, the Fat cap could be worn by the working class as an everyday cap and by the upper class during sporting activities.
The Flat cap is sewn from a single piece of fabric and has seams at the edges that create the fit. A Flat cap express a robust, obvious, timeless and sophisticated style.
Our caps have a handmade quality and timeless style. We always start from traditional shapes, patterns and materials and then adapt them to a contemporary expression.
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.
