Borman- 8 Panel British Made Vintage Harris Tweed 1968 by Gamble and Gunn
The Borman is made is made using vintage Harris Tweed a mid grey in colour with hints of blue, turquoise, orange and red within the yarn, a completely unique batch of cloth caps entirely manufactured in the UK.
Made from hand woven Harris Tweed from small independant Harris weaver, with help from The Harris Tweed Authority we have established the cloth was made at some point between April 1968 and January 1969.
Looking back at all the things that were happening at the time, Martin Luther King & Bobby Kennedy were both assassinated a few months apart and aboard Apollo 8 Jim Lovell, Bill Anders and Frank Borman became the first humans to orbit the moon, this hat has history literally woven into its fabric!
These tweeds are made only in small runs, in 6m x 750cm lengths only. This is an artisan creation made from the yarn the weaver chooses, made locally, therefore each batch cannot be created exactly again making these completely individual items. This cap is hard wearing and extremely versatile addition to any wardrobe.
