Ektypon is grown out of our hiphop background and we believe in craftsmanship.
We enjoy to make lettering art and calligraphy. By putting these designs on hats, we’re creating some special and limited caps.
The idea of the Amsterdam hat popped up to create an iconic hat for the citizens of Amsterdam.
The initial is a custom-made typeface, based on lettering used by New York City DJ’s, MC’s and B-Boys on their garment in the ’70s and ’80s. At the time only sold as iron-on transfers in a few local shops.
A homage to the DIY hiphop culture.
