I’ve wanted to make this hat for a while, it is inspired by one of my favourite basketball players of all time and pays homage to my trip to Croatia this year. The hat itself is in the colours of the now defunct New Jersey Nets and is knit in a very traditional way. We wanted this hat to look like the type of thing your grandma would knit for you. Made from an alpaca, British wool and acrylic mix, this has will feel as sleek as the great man’s shooting.
Drazen was part of the great Croatian basketball team that took the USA’s dream team all the way in the 1992 Olympic games and the famous Yugoslavian national basketball team which included Kukoc and Divac which won gold at the FIBA in 1990. Widely regarded as one of the greatest shooters that the NBA has ever seen, his career was tragically cut short after a fatal car accident.
Money from each sale will go to the Drazen Petrovic Foundation for them to carry on their excellent work in Drazen’s home nation of Croatia.
You can also purchase this hat and the Petrovic scarf together as a pack for £65, just use the code PETROVICPACK.
MADE IN THE UK.
