The inner lining is made of breathable viscose and the sweatband is made of natural leather. The leather strap is attached to the crown with 2 decorative buttons.
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 Maciejówka 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 cap or greek style fisherman's cap.
In our offer you can also find replicas of Pilsudski's Polish Legions Caps. This fiddler cap is available in big xxl and xxxl sizes. Precise handmade craftsmanship from Sterkowski family-run manufacture.

What an outrageously handsome cap! It is everything and more than what the picture of it represents. The quality of the materials: the brown leather is beautiful and the grey color and quality of the wool is perfect. The workmanship is fantastic. I was unaware of the history of this type of cap but was extremely drawn to its style. Kudos to Sterkowski!
Glorious and stylish
I love to wear a cap that has its shape likes this one but Maciejowka has its history and also, Sterkowski has its own history too. So I love it so much although it is the most expensive one but it’s my first Sterkowski’s cap, and yes, it’s my first impression.
