Câbleami is a small company based out of Kobe, Japan focusing solely on knit hats. They launched in 2008, melding traditional manufacturing with modern technology. The brand name comes from the Aran Cable knitting technique they use often in their designs. The word "ami" has two meanings -- in Japanese, it means "knit" and, in French, it means "friend". The name reflects Câbleami's philosophy to create hats that will be cherished as if they were friends by interweaving various individual elements as it is done in cable patterns.
