All of our cotton caps are made in Italy and are a "one size fits all".
In reality, they fit the vast majority of people well but those above a 60cm will struggle.
It is also worth noting that although the cap itself can be machine washed (at 30 degrees), the peaks and ribbons of some caps are more delicate than others.
Therefore in Prendas` extensive experience, the longevity of cotton caps increases with careful hand washing in cold water with mild washing detergent used. The La Vie Claire caps in particular with the original 1980's Tyvek ribbon is only suitable for a cold hand wash only.
We have written a blog article about washing a cotton cycling cap to help you avoid a disaster!
The Cinelli Ciao Italia cap is one of our firm favourites! If the red & white chequered pattern looks familiar, it's inspired by the typically Italian Gingham tablecloths used in traditional Italian restaurants & coffee shops.
We have got a classic 1980's San Marco poster hung up in our office where you can enjoy seeing Giuseppe Saronni in his GIS Gelati team jersey enjoying an aperitif after his meal, with said Gingham tablecloth in the foreground.
