Valorisation Lab. is a Ukrainian brand run by Denis Chernyavskyy, specialising in headwear made from unconventional and reused materials. Over the summer, they launched their first collection of baseball caps made from vintage scarves. Chernyavskyy has now launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new Billiards Line of hats made from old billiard table cloth. There are four styles to choose from, the bucket hat, strap back cap, baseball cap and 5-panel cap. The brand deliberately makes a feature of the dotted pattern or ‘ball burns’ on the old billiard cloth, a high quality material made from 80% wool and 20% nylon. Brims are made from synthetic leather and the labels and straps are of from leftover leather from shoe production.
