Ukraine-based design studio ValorisationLab has come up with a collection of hats that are made from an unusual material: billiards tablecloth! Called the ‘BILLIARDS LINE’, the hats make use of cloth upcycled from old billiards tablecloths. They even come in four styles: a bucket cap, a strap back cap, a baseball cap, and a 5-panel cap. Just imagine the number of wins and losses, jokes, bull sessions and heart to heart talks happened around those tables. If only these caps could talk! These memories are manifested on each cap in the small white dots and ball burns from the fabric’s former life.  The brim made of PU eco-leather, patch on the front and strap on the back are made of genuine leather – remnants from shoes production.
