Since 1991 PICKAPOOH has specialised on the design and hand-production of ecologically sound and high-quality hats and accessories that kids love to wear. Pickapooh uses only uses organic materials. They live up to strict ecological criteria and social responsibility to the benefit of people, animals, plants and the environment. All products are made in Germany.
Pickapooh Winter is made from organic merino wool from ecologically raised livestock (kontrolliert biologische Tierhaltung (kbT)]. Respect and appreciation for humans and animals alike are the guiding principles of the ecological upbringing of animals. The sheep live a species-appropriate, healthy and stress-free life. Their grazing lands fulfil all climatic and ecological requirements. No pesticides are used on the land and the animals. The animals can breed naturally, don’t get their tails cut and can keep their horns. In short, their fine wool comes from happy animals.
Pickapooh Summer Sun hats, are exclusively made from 100% organic cotton (kontrolliert biologischer Anbau (kbA)). Organic cotton farming does not use any chemically synthesised fertilisers and pesticides and genetically modified seeds are forbidden. They support fair trade and do business respecting human dignity.
Pickapooh hats provide natural UV protection. There are three different grades of UV protection (UV Protect 20, 60 und 80) – all certified according to the highest standard UV-Standard-801. This standard tests everyday-use conditions. This strict standard exceeds the widely used Australian-New Zealand standard that only tests new and dry textiles. A material with a UPF of 40 according to the Australian-New Zealand Standard falls back to a UPF of 5 when tested according to the UV-Standard-801.
