Let's get back to the roots

where the revolution began

  • 2015

    It all started with an idea

    Wooden accessories started to become trendy. Besides wooden watches, sunglasses and bow ties, the only key piece missing was the wooden baseball cap.

  • March 2016

    First prototypes were produced

    With the vision of developing a sustainable product, we focused on using only natural materials. The biggest challenge was shaping a solid material like wood into a three-dimensional, flexible object.

  • December 2016

    A long way of improvements

    The first prototypes were slightly stiff and heavy. We kept experimenting with different materials and working methods. Finally, we created the first flexible woodencap made of wood, cotton, natural rubber glue and seams made of recycled PET bottles. Finally we got the process patented.

  • July 2017

    Machines and processes were developed

    In order to offer the caps to the broad public, we needed to make the manufacturing more efficient. Therefore we developed customized machines to optimize the production process.

  • March 2018

    A high quality product is born!

    After finalizing the concept of our edition1, the packaging and marketing campaign, our woodencap got awarded with the reddot award 2018 in the category of product design.

  • April 2018

    Rootpecker at Milano Design Week 2018

    First exposition of our woodencaps at Milano Design Week in trendy Lambrate District. We received outstanding feedback by the audience!

  • July 2018

    Rootpecker received the Red Dot Award

    We enjoyed an excellent night at the Red Dot Award Ceremony in Essen and connected with other designers.
