A-3 Swedish ‘Talt Halv’ Papa Nui x Troy O’Shea Camo Cap

A rare find is the WWII M39 Swedish ‘talt halv’, a Nordic camouflaged patterned shelter quarter that draws an uncanny parallel to the WWI German ‘Stahlhelme’ camo helmets with their distinct use of black outlines to separate a scheme that seems to have jumped straight off the colour palette of Georg Muche.

Papa Nui x Troy O’Shea, have joined forces again, connecting dots and traversing an original and authentic path. Taking this remarkable piece of cloth and laying up the pattern pieces of an A-3 cap they have embarked on an intricate and painstakingly laborious process to ensure that the camouflage mimics the design flow of the 1918 German helmet patterns. Each cap is individual so I’m putting each one up separately so you can choose the lay of the design.
