The newsboy Jim, made with recycled wool
The newsboy hat Jim is designed to be over and comfortable on the head. The first newsboy hats were born in England to boost the internal economy and the wool production. With our recycled wool version we wanted to bring a material back to the origins, but in a sustainable way.
How it was made
The recycled wool bucket hat is made from pre-consumer industrial waste selected by color, transformed into a new fiber and carded. From here a new wool cloth can be woven. It is necessary to add some polyamide recycled from old fishing nets, in order to reinforce the fibers, stressed by the regeneration of the old fabric.
Thanks to the selection by color of industrial wool waste, the production of this recycled cloth can save a lot of water and chemicals, which are necessary for a new color.
