Californian leathersmiths KILLSPENCER have gained a following for their hands-on accessories and bags, which often mix hardwearing organic textiles — leather in particular — with utilitarian silhouettes. The brand’s latest effort will send 100% of profits directly to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund: two Black Lives Matter caps rendered in premium textiles.

Full-grain leather informs the brim of one iteration, while the other utilizes wool; both feature a wool crown. The 8-panel shape sports a reflective Black Lives Matter logo (a gently tweaked Raised Fist) and the right side features KILLSPENCER’s signature leather patch. Insider, a sturdy rivet keeps it all together. An adjustable metal clasp at the rear ensures a comfortable fit.

Shop the two charitable hats on KILLSPENCER’s website for $65 USD (wool) and $85 USD (leather).

Elsewhere, metropolitan-based artists are taking a vocal stand against staid cultural institutions found lacking on matters of racial justice and launching initiatives to drive funds towards Black justice organizations.
