Our Proud Canadian Heritage
We are proud of our Canadian heritage and been manufacturing high quality products that don’t just look good but will protect against the elements. In keeping with that vision, some of the styles we are famous for are still made here in Winnipeg, Canada.Crown Cap began manufacturing textile headwear for the Western Canadian farm trade in 1934. In the midst of a decade long drought on the prairies, those working the land appreciated the relief and protection of a well-made fitted work cap.
When Paul Leinburd acquired Crown Cap in 1987 he saw the answer to a different kind of drought on the prairies—the absence of finely crafted luxury headwear and accessories. Impressed by the skilled handiwork of the Crown Cap production team, Paul knew that combining those old-world skills with high-end fur and leather materials would have the world knocking at his door. Indeed, unique designs and exquisite hand crafting has drawn world-renowned designer labels and retailers to the stunning creations at Crown Cap.
