Best of Both Worlds
Headict, designer and entrepreneur Rick Prins was addicted to caps at an early age. But there was a problem: the older he became, the more he realized that many caps were the same. Rick didn’t like to always wear the same colors and brands and therefore decided to design the ultimate cap himself. He developed a premium quality cap, which he customized. When he found the right manufacturer he received inspiration and developed a logo that everyone loved. Meanwhile, Rick’s designs have been picked up by many others who are pig-headed, confident and independent. Dream chasers who do not want to live a normal life and dare to be different. Especially for them, Rick founded Gajes in 2015.
Sneakerfreak and salesperson Emiel Strikkers already had a great collection of caps as a little boy. You would have to be Sherlock Holmes to find a school picture where he wasn’t wearing a hat. Emiel’s passion for fashion allowed him to renew vintage clothes. In addition, he rocked the Amsterdam partyscene for several years as DJ and labeled TUIG! legendary parties that were guaranteed to be crazy. Meanwhile, Emiel made it himself into retail, but he wanted more. He wanted something different. He had too much energy for 9 to 5 at the office, so when his old buddy Rick asked him to put together the fashion industry with Gajes he did not have to think long. The Gajes dream team was born and since then the boys went like a crossrocket.
