Limited edition 100% organic cotton cap with sun embroidery.
Adjustable back strap.
This cap was made in collaboration with Jone Taberna, an artist and jeweler from the Basque Country. Her work is deeply inspired in the connection between people and nature.
Eki is the name of the Sun in the Basque language. In Basque mythology, Eki or Eguzki is seen as daughter of Mother Earth to whom she returns daily. She was regarded as the protector of humanity and the enemy of all evil spirits. The ancient Iberians called her "grandmother" and held rites in her honour at sunset.
For us this cap reminds the sensation of the heat of the sunlight in the skin after a long winter and keep us in a really good mood.

( 1 ) WHAT WE DO
We started this adventure 9 years ago. Adriana and Fran met each other filming a short film in Barcelona and they started dreaming about having their own brand. One day Fran found this 'Do your own backpack' course on Internet, we are kind of this DIY people. After Adriana posted her fist backpack on IG we started receiving orders from our friends. We created a Facebook page and our living room became our first atelier.
The brand started to grow and grow, we were so happy! Our products were on showcases and on the streets. Then Antonio and Juan -Fran's childhood friends- became part of the company and since then we've been working hard to get our mission done:
"To create the best possible experience for our clients through exploring better ways of sustainability, further ways of functionality and longer lasting products. The perfect tool for the modern explorer like you are."
