Marko Neofotistos is not only the co-founder of MKO hats, but also the designer. As a trained carpenter, Marko is known around the city for his numerous wooden art pieces shown in galleries and his award-winning collaboration with Toronto jeweller, Eric Petersen. Coining the term, “woodsmith” Marko continues to innovate on how wood can be used and his snapbacks are the perfect example.
Each piece uses exotic wood and is considerably rare and one-of-a-kind. Made by hand in Toronto through an extensive process of lamination, form pressing, saw and sanding, the results really are amazing. You can check out the two signature styles below and purchase them at Brimz in Toronto.
