The Genuine Irish Tweed Patchwork Cap.
This is the tweed patchwork cap hand-tailored from 100% wool in County Donegal, Ireland by one of the Emerald Isle's last remaining bespoke tailors. Made by Hanna Hats, renowned purveyor of fine tweed garments for over 80 years, the wool comes from Galway sheep -- frequently claimed as Ireland's only native breed -- raised west of the River Shannon.
Originally, tweed patchwork caps were a symbol of Ireland's working class, but their charm, durability, and warmth quickly made them sought after by the aristocracy. Naturally water-repellant, the squares of tweed are hand-selected to create a unique, one-of-a-kind patchwork with a rich array of colors and textures that evoke the diverse landscape of the Donegal Highlands. The underside of the cap is lined with viscose taffeta and a snap secures the bill to the top of the cap.
