Shaun Deller's Profile

About

I make quality, fashionable and functional cycling caps from recycled wool, cotton, linen and hemp thrift store garments. I have been making cycling caps since 2004 after moving to Portland from the East coast. Deller caps are inspired by the early days of British cycling when riders wore tweed sport coats, knickers and a flat cap and went on leisurely tours over hill and dale, to picnic under the shade of an oak or have tea time in a country tavern. The illustrations of the late cycling artist, Frank Patterson, sum it up best.

I love tweeds and other coarse fabrics that reflect the colors and textures of the landscape. There is an abundance of clothing that is discarded and donated to thrift stores every day simply because of a stain, moth hole or change in fashion trends. I make use of this surplus by transforming these garments into caps that function as fashionable headwear for sporting ladies and gents.
My wife, son and I moved in the summer of 2014 from Deer Island, Oregon to live in a log cabin in Priest River, Idaho, where we raise a flock of Icelandic sheep, as well as rabbits and chickens. All of my caps are designed and sewn by me in my home studio. You may find out more about Deller caps and my artwork by visiting www.shaundeller.blogspot.com
