About Us

The name Stiksen originates from co-founder Asim’s childhood when he was regularly asked by one of his teachers to take his cap off in the classroom. At the end of each class, the same teacher would jokingly say in Swedish ”Ta på dig kepsen och stick sen” [Stiksen], which roughly means “Put your cap on and then get out of here”.

A funny anecdote, but also a story that brings up the deeper question of what is considered acceptable in our society and why. We strive to contribute to a more inclusive world by removing barriers between cultures. One of the ways we do this is by elevating the cap and making it a suitable garment for every situation.

Sustainability

We are in a constant strive to do better for our environment and planet. All our caps are made with sustainability in mind, whether it'd be 100% organic, GOTS-certified cotton or recycled wool. Our raw material are grown without pesticides and coloured only with azo free dyes.

Being a part of the fashion industry, we are aware of our environmental footprint and therefore trying to minimize it by paying close attention to each step of the production process. We acknowledge that there will always be room for improvement and are actively working towards a greener supply chain.

Responsibility

Let's get personal. Stiksen’s founder, Asim, is born and raised in Sweden with parents from Bangladesh, a developing country yet one of the largest global textile exporters. In order to connect back to his roots, he has chosen to work with Bangladeshi small-scale producers. Speaking the Bengali language, living the culture and visiting yearly, it was an obvious choice to partner up with factories in Bangladesh.

Our cap factory is a member of BGMEA (The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association). Their employees work 8 hours a day with overtime pay, have vacations, free medical service at site and insurances, among other benefits. In addition to our cap factory, we place our raw material orders with non-profit organization Thanapara Swallows to help marginal Bangladeshi women gain economic and social awareness for better living standards.

With transparency, understanding of the conditions as well as insights into the partners we produce at, we can contribute to a greater positive impact on a larger number of people. At Stiksen, we value responsibility high and will always consider it in every decision we make.

Quality

We want to transform the cap industry. The cap has in some communities become a wear-and-tear fast fashion item with no love for the product itself. As we believe in quality, we focus on producing caps that can be worn for years and years. With premium fabric and delicate production, our pieces are expected to last longer. We work closely with small scale producers with excellent craftsmanship in production and finishing in order to offer the absolute best-in-class durable headwear.
