Smart, fashionably informed, natural, cosmopolitan, and at the same time, close to home. What applies to the founder Kristina Blaschitz of the Graz label "Mützenmafia" also describes the character of the collection well. In doing so, she consciously pays attention to acting sustainably in every respect. There‘s the small, fine team in the Styrian capital. Strict attention is paid here to ensuring that the employees feel comfortable. What is not made by hand by the knitters in Austria is made in neighbouring Slovenia. Short transport routes and regionality are important to her. When using raw materials, she attaches great importance to the fact that they are recycled materials, organic cotton or the yarn can be precisely traced using yarn tracking. Animal welfare is our top priority! Since 2011, the label has devoted its heart to the production of hats, headbands and scarves. For her, for him, for the little ones. A lot of love is devoted to the cultural heritage of handicrafts. Customers include large department stores, as well as shops specialising in sustainability, traditional costume shops or fashionable boutiques, as well as concept stores in Austria and Germany.
