Irish Flat Cap

The Irish Flat Cap

I think everyone will have a memory or an image that comes to mind when we think of the Flat Cap., in fact there is probably one in most houses in Ireland.

An Irish Flat Cap is traditionally a rounded wool cap with a stiff brim at the front. Modern flat caps can be made of cotton, tweed or leather. The origins of the flat cap lie with 14th century Ireland yet there are some sources that claim the cap was worn before that in England, which we may dispute here in Ireland as it is a part of our history too much not to have originated from here. People in Scotland and Southern Italy wore a similar style cap, although they referred to it as a bonnet.
