Kippot Materials

  • The first thing you should decide about before buying your kippot is the fabric / type of kippah. Here are the main fabrics / types:
    • Hand crocheted kippot – made of cotton and crocheted in many designs.
    • Satin – a smooth fabric of silk or rayon; has a glossy face and a dull back.
    • Suede – made of the flesh side of a skin through a special treatment that produces a napped, velvet-like finish. We couldn’t find any vendor that specifies of which animal skin these kippot are manufactured. The Doc is curious!

      Hand Crocheted Kippot
    • Eco-Suede (Faux Suede) – This fresh innovation is the eco-friendly vegan alternative to suede-leather kippot. They look like suede kippot, but are made of recycled cardboard.
    • Tartan – Tartan is a pattern, particularly associated with Scotland, consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Tartan kippot have a colorful and updated style.
    • Brocade – Brocade kippot are a good option for those looking for a traditional, serious feel. Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often made in colored silks and with or without gold and silver threads.

      Leather Kippot
    • Velvet – Members of most Haredi and Yeshivish groups usually wear black velvet or cloth kippot. Apart of the black ones, there a rich selection of colorful velvet kippot with different designs.
    • Leather – Leather kippot tend to be worn by Religious Zionists and the Modern Orthodox. While the kippot are beautiful and classy, the doc prefers the eco-friednly kippot alternative.
  • The choice between these alternatives is yours, it is a really matter of personal taste. The hand-crocheted kippot are colorful and happy. It has a larger variety of designs. The suede and the satin kippot are traditional and pretty serious (though they are offered nowadays also in flashy colors and special designs).
