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 Vega expedition 1878–1880 under the leadership of Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld was the first expedition that found and sailed the entire Northeast Passage and became a great scientific success.

The Fiddler cap has many names like Vega cap, Greek Fisherman's cap, Mariner's cap, Breton cap, Navy cap, Skippers cap or Elbsegler but the basic shape is the same.
