Bob Mesh Cap - adi-upcycle
'Here's a little story that must be told...'
German made, vintage adidas wicking fabric that somehow made it's way onto a decorating job in 1980s West Germany. Travels to the UK via a young Salfordian decorator who'd left Thatcher's Britian in search of employment opportunities. 20 something years as dust sheets until it turns up covering the stairs of an apartment block in Salford in the early 2000s. A deal was done and the "dust sheets" start their return into the world of apparel. Upcycled T-shirts are made and a 'Cease and Desist' is issued. The fabric lies dormant until a conversation with Benji 'Blunt Shank' in July 2023. Two months later an edition of five handmade caps!
This fabric is worn and storied, 40 years of use and usefulness. The adidas fabric features paint drops, splatters and stains. Each hat is thoroughly unique and never to be repeated. Presented in repurposed shoe box with custom label unique to the owner.
