How to wash and take care of your cap

Our caps are a combination of fine fabrics and great craftsmanship, all designed to last. Like any other garment, a cap should be well taken care of. By continuous cleaning and care, you can increase the longevity and wear of your cap which benefits both you and the environment. Depending on the fabric, you can wash a baseball cap, but it should always be washed by hand, using proper care. Below, we break down how we recommend maintaining your cap based on its material.

Cap Travel

The construction and fit are key elements of our caps. It is important that you maintain the cap's shape as well as possible. To achieve this, we recommend avoiding adding any unnecessary weight to your cap that could alter its shape. When traveling, we recommend using our Travel Case to ensure your cap looks the same when you arrive at your destination as it did when you departed.

Rinse & repeat

Always look after your cap following excessive use and sweating. If your cap comes in contact with sweat, chlorinated pool water or other chemicals, it may experience discoloration, in which case it is important that your remove these liquids as soon as possible. If you use your cap for activities, we recommend selecting a more technical fabric such as Active Tech, Athletic Sport or Intensity Sport – all of which can be easily rinsed and washed after use.

Washing tips

Some models can be hand washed, but it is critical to consider what you wash a cap with. The best way to wash a cap is by using warm water (around 30°C or 85°F) and a mild textile detergent without bleach (study the care label inside the cap first). Dry your cap by filling it out with a towel to help maintain its beautiful shape and avoid wrinkles. Keep away from direct heat such as radiators or sunlight while drying.

Please note: Washing will affect the shine of the fabric and can cause fuzzing or pilling. The viscose lining found in certain caps may also shrink during washing. Never machine wash your cap and always be sure to check the care label within the headband.
