In Japan, there isn’t much of a winter hat culture and so outside of the ski slopes or mountainous regions of Japan, you might be hard pressed to spot someone sporting a winter hat. What this also means is that when we tried to select a base hat, we found ourselves struggling to find something local.
With the fact that one of the founders hails from Canada, a country with vast regions covered more days in the snow than naught, it made sense to find a partner and source a base design from over there. Heck, Canadians even have a special word for a winter hat - the toque (pronounced ‘too-k’).
KBC is happy to present a super soft 100% acrylic double layer knit toque that can be worn cuffed or un-cuffed. The toque comes in a single size and we’ve sourced 2 different colours - heather grey and charcoal. Both colours feature 2 decorative tags with the KBC wordmark and logo.
