Yamatomichi Cap

Yamatomichi Cap is our Stretch Mesh Cap but with a Yamatomichi Logo embroidery designed by artist Kazama Naomi!

Like the Stretch Mesh Cap, it features a brim made from a shape-memory fabric that allows for flexible adjustments. The ultra-light stretch material is so comfortable that you might forget you’re wearing it, and it dries quickly even if it gets wet.

The Aritist

Naomi Kazama

Born in Kamakura, Japan. In 1996, while studying in the United States, he learned screen printing from Shepard Fairey, known for his work with OBEY, and began his career as a screen print artist. After returning to Japan, he and his friends started an experimental gallery-like salon in Nakameguro. In 2012, he initiated the “Big O project,” which involved on-the-spot printing of various items on the streets. Throughout his activities, he places emphasis on organic cotton and upcycling. He received support from Patagonia for a nationwide tour in Japan and conducted live printing events in New York, the West Coast, Korea, Australia, Italy, and more. He also creates and showcases artwork produced through screen printing in various parts of Japan.

Naomi is a great friend of ours at Yamatomichi and is involved in creating artwork for our stores and designing our original tenugui (Japanese hand towel).

Product Story

Elastic, Light, Comfortable

Akira Natsume, Yamatomichi Founder

I always wear a cap when hiking, whenever, and wherever I am.

I want my cap to be comfortable, to protect me from strong sunshine, and keep me warm when it’s chilly. It should keep out the rain and stay securely on my head even during strong winds.

Nori KO, wearing the Black color.

For many years I was looking for a cap to match my needs, but as I couldn’t find a perfect one I decided to make my own.
For maximum comfort, every single part of the cap is made of elastic material. The size can be adjusted with one hand when it’s windy, and even sleeping with the cap on feels comfortable.
In the hot and humid summer in Japan, when you are on the move or lie down to sleep, the Stretch Mesh Cap offers you much comfort. It is so comfortable that you almost forget you are wearing it.

Form and Fuction

Brim with Shape Memory Fabric

We placed a significant emphasis on the design of the brim during development. Through numerous prototypes and tests, we achieved a brim that met our satisfaction.

With our shape-memory brim, you can make precise adjustments to the brim to your liking. No matter how much you bend it you can shape the brim back to its flat state.

Moreover, its thin and flexible nature allows it to resist bending when strong winds blow, effectively deflecting the wind and making it less likely for the cap to be blown away.

Single-hand Adjuster

The low-profile adjuster offers quick single-hand fitting. When you sleep with the cap on, the adjuster does not cause any discomfort.


To maintain the overall roundness of the deep fitting crown, the brim is stitched horizontally to maintain its shape when raised.

For maximum comfort remove the rebel by carefully cutting the thread.

We’ve created a minimal brand tag that is delicately embroidered and doesn’t interfere with the simple design.

Very compact when packed.

At just 33g (Size S), it’s so lightweight that you’ll forget you’re wearing it.


Elastic Material for Maximum Comfort

Except for the front panel and the brim, the cap is made of breathable mesh for comfort even during the hot and humid summer months. The elastic material offers excellent comfort.
