Thinking Caps

Maker - Nancy Spangrud

Maker Story

Hats On

We’re taking cover under cadet-style caps. With cutout graphics and a casually distressed vibe, these unisex caps are effortlessly chic. Plus they send uplifting messages. Each one is an expression of peace, happiness, positive thinking and other social sentiments.

The creators are David Hellstrom and Nancy Spangrud, the duo behind the custom map-making company Map Your Travels.They were brainstorming how to use maps in new applications and came up with the idea to put a map on a hat with the motto, “Think globally.” That combo spurred a flurry of other messaging ideas and led to the launch of Thinking Caps (which are making their debut here on Daily Grommet).

David and Nancy teamed with a sustainable apparel designer to create the caps, which are made from 100% organic cotton. They’re distinguished by a number of fine details: multi-layered stitching, embroidered messaging, deliberately frayed edges, and a surprise graphic design on the inside of each cap. You can take cover from the sun (or disguise a bad-hair day) and voice your passion with one cool lid. It won’t take long for a Thinking Cap to become your favorite go-to topper.
