What's in an A-1 kippah ?

There's more than just fabric in our kippah. We put 50 years of experience, old-world attention to detail, and uncompromising quality, into every skullcap. You can buy our products with confidence.

Boro Park, Brooklyn

The A-1 Skullcap Factory is located in Boro Park, Brooklyn - Judaica capital of the world. 90% of Boro Park males wear yarmulkes all the time - and local shops join retailers across the country in ordering their yarmulkes from A-1. Around the corner or across the continent, A-1 clients get A-1 quality - and A-1 service!

Cutting

Cutting. Meet Baruch, professional cutter at A1 Skullcaps. He operates this hydraulic machine, to cut yarmulkes perfectly. The machine exerts two tons of pressure to cut fine satin, tough leather, and any of the other fabrics we use, to perfection for the kippot.

Fifty Years Experience

Shaindel has fifty years of sewing experience. Now, she lends her expertise to your clients' yarmulkes. Shaindel and 20 others sewers on our factory floor sew each kippah, using top-quality fabrics and thread.

Finishing

Gold and silver, braid and twist - each yarmulke is finished, in one of an astounding array of trims. The yarmulke looks done - but it's not ready, until a trained inspector makes sure that is meets A-1's tough quality standard.

Stamping

Wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and function yarmulkes get one more touch - custom stamping. Chaim, our on-staff printer, takes orders, makes a custom printing plate, and prints the underside of each yarmulke, creating a masterpiece souvenir.
