Village Cap / headwear

Village Cap
Village Cap

In the 50's of Taiwan, young women and men who worked in the farms wore bamboo hats that were warped with colorful floral patterned cloths. The pattern means fortune, youthfulness, and the style in their village. Now, people wear western caps, called“Trucker Cap” more often to show their characters instead of wearing the local bamboo hats with the cloth. Conflicting between the locals and the westerns, Village Cap grows a cap-look in the front but has a contour of a bamboo hat hides beneath the cloth. This headwear is designed to rise the self-awareness of fading cultures and emerging styles that are changing our fashion belief in asia.
