Jämä Flat Cap
The flat cap - in the form as we know it - has certainly stood the test of time for over a hundred years. We got some random batches of random fabrics and decided to craft these hats from it. Made in Finland!
A good proper model!
We didn't go out to reinvent the wheel, but took the Särmä Flat Cap and made it just a bit slimmer. The visor part has only a light stiffener, so the cap can be stowed away easily if needed. Inside you'll find a sweatband and lining, depending on the model. The price of the caps vary depending on the fabrics and details.
Because the fabrics types vary, we'll list the available variations here. You probably picked out the fact that our selection varies depending on the available materials, making each batch rather unique.
Dark Brown With Lining
Made of tweed style woolrich fabric from a Finnish clothing manufacturer. Quite old and rather high quality. The Dark Brown cap has a dark turquoise, 100 % cotton work cloth twill lining on the inside.
Surplus fabric of a Finnish civilian clothing manufacturer. Called "Tuulikangas Puhuri 2", this thick, wind resistant fabric is very old, and might even originate from the 40's. No lining on this hat, as the fabric is already quite thick!
*) Size 62 is slightly bigger than usual, and corresponds more to size 63 (US 7 7/8).
Jämä is upcycled surplus
Jämä is a Finnish word meaning leftovers or scraps. It’s also one of our house brands for equipment made from recycled or surplus materials. From time to time we accumulate stuff that doesn't sell well but is made out of outstanding materials. We've also got several capable seamstresses here, and the equation is pretty clear: cut that useless stuff apart and sew it back together to create something useful. Nowadays we also take in civilian materials.
Because Finnish labour is one of the most expensive in the world, these are very simple, practical and rugged in design. Our development and prototype production remains in-house while most of the production is outsourced to Turku - still within Finland. Simplicity means strength: the fewer parts there are, the smaller the chance of breaking anything.
