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.
