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 GiS Gelati retro cotton team cap is an accurate reproduction of the original team cap that features the distinctive and unique logo on the cap and also the central ribbon used.
If you hadn't guessed by now, GiS Gelati was an ice cream company, and they were not the only ice cream company involved in cycling with Gelati Sammontana (Italy), Gelati Sanson (Italy), Miko (France) and Ijsboerke (Belgium) also in the pro peloton.
