METRO= KALKIES BEANIE IN BLACK

THE STORY:


The seaside village of Kalk Bay, 40 minutes outside of Cape Town, was established in the 17th Century as a small community of lime-burners who mined the nearby deposits of limestone. Its name was derived from the Dutch word for chalk. In 1795 the Dutch located a small military outpost here, and after 1806 it began to flourish as a fishing village and whaling station. During the 1860s it became popular as seaside resort and watering place, and remains just that to this day alongside the fishing fleet based in its picturesque harbour. Our beanie is inspired by the fishermen who man these boats hence the name, “Kalkies”, the colloquial name for Kalk Bay.
