Unique Real Deal Tarp Ball Cap
A real deal tarp ball cap is a very unique hat made in a small, remote rural village in Brazil. These caps are made from recycled canvas tarpaulins that have been used for many years to cover cargo being trucked over the roads throughout South America. Each hat is hand-made, unique and truly one of a kind.
Every cap or hat made by Real Deal has its own unique aspects. They might include Portuguese writing from ink stamps originally applied to the tarps while in transit and often have holes, patches and other signs of their former life as a truck tarp. Worn areas where loads were tied down are included, as are other obvious imperfections like rips, patches and tears. They also include small grommets on the crown that allow the caps to breathe.
All hand-stitched, the one of a kind quality of each piece owes to the years the tarpaulin material was used to protect goods from rain and sun and other natural elements on the backs of trucks through the mountains and jungles of Brazil. Owning one of these ball caps, you have an instant conversation piece that others will most likely find fascinating to learn about.
Using recycled tarps for these hats not only saves the environment but also looks very cool and is incredibly comfortable, which is what a hat should be. These tarps have been from the Amazon to Sao Paulo and back and been pounded by rain, baked in the blistering sun, ravaged by salt-filled winds and assaulted by debris from the roadside.
The real real tarp ball cap is high quality and has unique style. It has a hook and loop strap to adjust and elastic sweat band to fit perfectly. It's extremely comfortable and will last for years. It's like owning a piece of history.
