Description

A black denim baseball cap made under the collaboration 'RAW for the Oceans' between G-STAR RAW and Bionic Yarn, whose Creative Director is Musician and entrepreneur, Pharrell Williams. Bionic Yarn's technology transforms recycled plastics selvedge from the ocean into high-performance fabrics. The octopus-like creature stitched onto the front of the cap is Otto the RAW for the Oceans mascot. Typical recycled yarns extrude a continuous filament that requires pristine raw material from advanced recycling systems to maintain strength. Bionic tolerates impurities by spinning shorter staple fibres and gaining strength from its more resilient thread structure.
