Papá Originals was born from passion. Founder Raphael's favorite baseball cap is the original style, invented and first worn by the Brooklyn Excelsiors baseball team in the 1860's. The style that later conquered the streets of New York, and then the US: the high profile, structured, flat brim cap.
Even in the hometown of the original cap, Raphael couldn't find a quality one that wasn't grossly overpriced. So, he decided to bring the stylish, classic, and reasonably priced baseball cap back to Brooklyn - the way it used to be. Raphael designed and carefully crafted the cap of his dreams at one of the last factories in Brooklyn.
It didn't take long for friends to start asking him to make ones for them. Calling him 'papá' - a term used endearingly among friends in his latin neighborhood.
