The knitted beanie: A classic that will never go out of style, and that fit any and every occasion, from meetings to mountains. Obviously, an iconic piece like this deserves a spot in our permanent collection. We have previously made knitted beanies locally in Oslo, but unfortunately we were not able to continue production, and had to look for other alternatives.
After lots of research and testing, we became aware of Filpucci – a skilled yarn producer in Italy. They were able to provide us with recycled yarn from pre-owned wool garments, and with that the idea of a recycled beanie was born.
The Recycled Wool Beanie is made of pre-owned wool garments that have been recycled. The fibers in the garments are separated and spun to new yarn by Filpucci in Italy. The yarn is then sent to Barcelos, Portugal, where the manufacturer Barceltricot Knitwear knits the beanies.
In addition to the actual beanie, the label is also recycled. It is made of used leather that has been crushed to a powder. The powder is then mixed with other natural materials to become a solid piece of fabric. The result is a natural and recycled product.
Note: Recycling is all good, but we would never call it sustainable. There are definitely emissions tied to recycled garments as well. The most important thing we can do for the environment either way is to create durable garments that you wear for as long as possible. Please take good care of this beanie!
- 100% recycled wool from pre-owned garments
- Label with discrete logo in recycled leather
- The beanie is fully fashion knit which means that it doesn't need to be cut or sewn, resulting in less waste
Our biggest goal is to reduce the volume of clothes produced. That means that what happens after you purchase our products needs to be just as important as how they are made. That's why this beanie (and all our other products) comes with a lifetime service, meaning we will help you keep it as long as possible, as long as you promise to take good care of it and wear it until it is completely worn out.

A key part of our design philosophy is that we don't care about trends. We design clothes that will look good in 2, 10 and 100 years. Our goal is to design classics. Every. Time.
If you need a beanie you can wear to work at the embassy, out at a bar or on a hike, The Recycled Wool Beanie is your best bet.
