NOT YOUR AVERAGE WINTER HAT
When the days get colder, and the weather constantly changes between sun, rain, wind, and snow, we know it's the time we desperately seek our favorite winter accessory. No matter which fashion magazine you browse through, one particular type of hat always catches your eye - the bucket hat! Available in a teddy or faux-fur optic, made out of wool, fleece, or corduroy, no one can live without it this winter.
We at Prinz Berlin have designed something special for you this season.
> WHAT MAKES IT SO SPECIAL?
The Prinz Bucket Hat is made of the finest and softest cashmere and its long brim and classic cloche shape add an elegant touch to this absolute classic. But what actually makes it special is that it is 100% hand-crocheted in Germany. A network of little helpers, whom we have carefully selected based on their experience and skills, crochet every thread by hand with great passion and attention to detail according to our Prinz Berlin design guidelines. Thats what makes our Prinz Bucket hat so special as every single piece needs time, care, and expertise until it is complete.
> WHAT IS CROCHET & WHY ARE ALL OUR BUCKET HATS HAND CROCHETED?
Crocheting is a needlecraft method performed using a crochet hook to interlock loops of yarn. Each stitch is completed before the next one begins, and a pattern exists of many layers. This is what makes it too complex for machines to replicate these patterns. Unlike knitting, crochet machines don't exist! Hence, to produce this particular piece for you without compromising the quality and design, all of our Prinz Bucket Hats had to be handmade. Each Bucket Hat is unique and the result of real craftsmanship.
> DOES THIS MEAN THE ENTIRE FASHION INDUSTRY RELY ON THIS CRAFTSMANSHIP?
NO! There are computer controlled machines that can mimic the movements of a human hand and create crochet-like fabrics. These machines are called crochet machines or "crochet robots". The crochet robots work with multiple crochet hooks to create loops in a yarn. These machines use two threads instead of one, effectively weaving the crochet pattern. While machines can produce crochet-like fabrics, the result is often not identical to a hand-crocheted piece.
We at Prinz Berlin value real craftsmanship and always focus on our product!
We hope you enjoy our Prince Bucket Hat Collection ❤️
