Berlin Hatmaking since 2007


we have fun with fabrics!

Captn-Crop strives to create authentic & unique yet everyday pieces at fair prices for all those people who appreciate the quality, creativity and aesthetics of handmade products.

Moritz Wolfgruber founded Captn-Crop in 2007 when he developed his own technique for making hats. Over the years, however, it has evolved into much, much more.



Every day we strive to make the best customised hats, caps, bags, backpacks and accessories for people around the world.

We started creating hats because we felt the need for simple, but authentic products of highest quality that are as unique as the people who wear them.

Captn Crop values design, functionality and quality above all. By constantly experimenting with new techniques, materials and ideas, new products are always being made and perfected in our Berlin studio and store.

Shop & Studio

Our shop and studio is based in Neukölln, Berlin, where every Captn Crop item is made.

We moved in our shop in Reuterstrasse in December 2009 and since that day a lot happened inside & outside. We constantly adjust and rebuild our studio to create a striking display as well as a spacious working area. We built the interior of our workshop entirely from wood and found materials. The outside is all green & covered with plants.

In 2020 a neighbours apartment burned down and we had to take it all down. A couple of months later though we were able build it up again and plant new vines.

If you happen to be in Berlin, pop by and say Hello! You can watch us crafting while trying on hats or choosing the fabrics for your customised piece!



“What does the money machine eat? It eats youth, spontaneity, life, beauty and above all it eats creativity. It eats quality and shits out quantity.”

- William S. Burroughs -

We believe that the world we live in is a very imperfect and unjust world.
For this reason, we need and want to do things differently and try to make things better. Make it better for the environment but also for us people who live in this world.

The planet and its inhabitants are in danger of extinction and environmental pollution, people suffer from alienated work conditions & increasing environmental catastrophes, to name just a few problems due to excesses of industrial mass-production.
