AH310 Handmade Caps

I’ve just seen these caps which made from old t-shirts. I don’t understand the story but it seems they are created by AH310 as a project where 100 were made. You can scroll through all of them. I think of the old t-shirts i just love the design of and this is a great idea to get more use out of them.

Here’s the conceptual idea:

The history of a t-shirt, daily impressions and aspirations associated with, its ability of communication, make it to a memorable piece which often you cannot separate from, even when it is worn out and unfitting. Project #1 refers to the desire of retaining a part of this individual past. Central point is the concept of giving a former favorite t-shirt a new gain as a cap and thus taking up the contemporary dialogue between wearer and observer. It is essential for AH310 to preserve the authenticity of the classic, simple shape & design of a t-shirt and the intimate, casual sensation of comfortable and practical wear. Each cap is unique, custom-made and coded within a limited edition from AH01 to AH99. A direct connection between the caps succeeds through the reverse side of the shield. Composed of the prior t-shirt, it gives continuity to a fragment of memory.

See them all.

    After the first “Project 1″ of 99 caps, AH310 now continues with it’s “Project 2″. Still the same idea: You give AH310 a t-shirt (ex-favorite t-shirt that doesn’t fit anymore for example) and get it converted into a custom handmade cap…
