Papa Nui is a small cap making brand that's bult all around the love of things with utility! Mixing military, surfing and a big spoon of vintage clothing as inspiration is what goes behind making these products.
The Beach Master bucket hat is made of a herringbone twill cotton fabric with the classic so called "Frogskin" camo pattern that was used by the US Marine Corp during WWII, this unique camo pattern was developed for a jungle environment and is printed with two different patterns on each side of the fabric so garments made with it could be reversed inside out to meet the demands of troops in the field. The side used on the outside of this cap is known as the "Jungle" side that is a green hue and the inside features a "Beach" sandy color scheme. While it's utility as camouflage in the urban jungle is questionable perhaps, it does stand out as an interesting detail paying homage to the history of the fabric!
