The Backstory

Jason Markk: This Brand Knows Shoe Care – Now It Wants to Teach Fans How to Take Care of Their Hats

Jason Markk has risen to fame as one of the most trusted brands in premium shoe care. The company initially launched around a single product: The Premium Shoe Cleaner. Over the last decade, that natural, biodegradable solution has earned the brand countless fans and paved the way for innovation after innovation. Now, the company is ready to introduce a hat care line.

Today, Jason Markk’s mission is, “Care for the things you care most about.” The company’s new solution is specifically formulated for hats, and designed for a variety of materials. With products in stores around the globe – including Bergdorf Goodman, Kith, Nordstrom, END, Foot Locker and Mr. Porter – fans can trust Jason Markk to know their way around your most prized hats, shoes and accessories.

What Kinds of Hats Can Jason Markk Hat Care Be Used On?

Jason Markk’s new Hat Care Kit is built around a Ready-To-Use Hat Cleaner that can be used on materials like cotton, wool, felt, corduroy, polyester and more. The natural Hat Cleaner is also biodegradable, as Jason Markk is in fact Certified Ultimate Biodegradable. The product can – and should – be used with the kit’s Premium Cleaning Brush. The tool boasts soft hog bristles designed for cleaning delicate hat materials, and can also be used dry for daily maintenance.

In addition to the Hat Care Kit’s staple products, new users can also turn to some of the brand’s other fan favorites to further protect their hats. For example, the brand’s ‘Repel’ solution is a water-based propellent free formula that creates a durable barrier on top of your hat. It can be used on suede, nubuck, nylon, canvas, cotton, knits and other absorbent materials to protect your piece from liquids and stains.

Similarly, the team’s Microfiber Towel can be used to gently clean your favorite hats, and offers a faster and gentler way to dry your piece after an initial scrub. Each microfiber is finer than a single strand of human hair. Consequently, each towel is equipped with millions of microscopic hooks that capture dirt and dust for a lint-free finish.
