Dutch Design Made in Europe
Capsters's Philosopy :
Free choice: We at Capsters believe the choice to cover yourself should be yours, and yours only. Whether you want to cover your head because of religious convictions, due to problems of hair loss, or just because you want to keep warm or express your identity, it is all up to you!
Empowerment: We believe in the empowerment of women. Especially with our sports range, we endorse women leading an active life. Therefore, we co-operate with Women Win!
Design headscarves: Capsters® designs are a comfortable and modern alternative for covering your head. Capsters designs are not a simple scarf but have a shape of their own. The Capsters® models do not need pins, knots or a separate undercover. We create modern designs in a variety of stretchable materials and different colors. Distinctive to express your identity: be who you want to be!
Capsters® is a range of head accessories that can be used for different purposes and can be worn for different sports activities. The history of Capsters lies in the graduation project of designer Cindy van den Bremen at the Design Academy Eindhoven back in 1999. The concept is based on the idea to give Muslim girls and their gym teachers in the Netherlands an alternative to the traditional hijab to wear during gym class. The designs are realized in close co-operation with Muslim girls and an Imam. Due to all the positive publicity, orders started coming in and soon the brand Capsters® was born. In 2001 the first sports range was launched and has been sold worldwide since. Not only Muslim women showed interest, but also other women and even men. For several years now Capsters has served an international and diverse clientele.
Capsters® is part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, USA.
The Capsters sportsmodels have won a Good Design Award in Japan in 2002.
