Captn Crop – The Hatter

Born in the very German town of Bad Reichenhall, 29-year-old Moritz Wolfgruber is the man behind the brand, and he designs and manufactures these unique pieces in his small ark in Berlin’s Neukölln neighbourhood. Moritz never learned the craft of hat making in the traditional way. Refusing to follow the traditional craft of hat making made him self-taught – everything he knows, he has taught himself over the years to make the unique hats you can find in the capital of cool. Each of his pieces tells a story as they are pieced together from unique vintage cloths or fabrics, be it a pair of old jeans, your great-grandmother’s rug, the neighbors’ living room curtains or simply a seat cover ripped from an old chair Moritz might have found abandoned on the streets of Berlin.
