Traditional cap with essentially mid-east European origin. A supple high quality 100% wool (ambassador type) along with a cotton lining offer an exquisite wearing comfort. Legions' emblem is easy to detach (with no harm to the headgear), therefore it can be also a perfect civil cap and a good choice for everyday use. Cap is warm, breathable and has 2 buttons with eagle - Poland's national symbol. Crown is made of 100% soft and gentle wool, and visor is made of genuine leather.
It came to Poland in XIXth century from today's Germany. At first it was considered as peasants headwear, then it became very popular when Pilsudski's Legions chose Maciejowka hat as a standard uniform headwear. In mid-war period and after II World War Maciejowka cap was worn by former Legions veterans and patriotic members of society as a tribute to Legions and their Independence deed.
Although Maciejowka is essentially a Polish cap, strictly bound to Polish history and its dramatic moments, there are also some similiar patterns throughout the world (its name is just different). This model of cap is also known as fiddler's cap, greek style fisherman's cap or breton caps.
This cap is available in big xxl and xxxl sizes. Precise handmade craftsmanship from Poland.
