This limited edition cap created in collaboration with Moscow-based artist Dunya Frankshtein for her art project Blooming Moss and its chapter Helmut's Wardrobe using tweed by the old Irish factory Kerry Woolen Mills.
The Blooming Moss mystification project is dedicated to bryologist Helmut Luchinsky and his main discovery - the blooming of a certain type of moss Polytrichum commune also called Common Haircap.
Eight-piece cap with medium width was made of brown-swamp Irish Tweed with herringbone weave. The tweed was woven in an old family-owned mill in Kerry County (Ireland), operating since 18th century. Cap is lined with soft linen. Inner rim tape made of 100% cotton.
All information on the lining is applied by the old method of hand printing using high-quality stamp ink for fabrics (it is resistant and does not fade).
There is a small pocket in the lining of the cap (the size of a standard plastic card). You can put cash, a bank card or a travel card in it. This brings us back to the old tradition of wearing small but valuable things in a cap. It also opens up opportunities, for example, to impressively pay for metro fare with a cap.
The cap is suitable for both men and women.
