It's all in the embroidery details!

This is the 100th edition of the Tour de France!

We love Le Tour and to honor this important milestone, Carolle and I are proud to introduce the new Le Tour 100 Cycling Cap and tdf 100 Piccola Wallet! Our new handmade cap offers unique details, embroidered underbrim detail and embroidered yellow 'le tour 100'. All the embroidery is done in our Vancouver studio with our new machine. We marvel at how well our new machine embroiders!

The ultimate prize: the yellow jersey...
Simon Gerrans wore le maillot jaune for 
two days!

Why yellow? 

The leader wears the maillot jaune or yellow jersey. Since 1919, the leader of the general classification wears the yellow jersey. The winner of the first Tour in 1903 wore a green armband not a yellow jersey. There is some doubt as to when the yellow jersey began. Philippe Thys won the Tour in 1913, 1914 and 1920 and years later said he was awarded the yellow jersey in 1913.

This beautiful Le Tour 100 cycling cap is a limited edition - on sale now while quantities last!

'le tour 100' for the yellow jersey!

The tdf 100 Piccola inner tube wallet.

We also took our popular Piccola wallet and improved it...

The results are striking! We added a bold red fabric with a French tricolor ribbon, embroidered Eiffel tower/wheel and 'tdf 100' script. We slightly enlarged the wallet to hold a few more plastic cards and business cards. We love the limited edition tdf 100 Piccola inner tube wallet  - C'est Magnifique!

Ordering the Limited Edition cap and wallet together...

For the first time, our tdf 100 wallet was designed to compliment Le Tour 100 cap. We're so excited with the results that when you order the cycling cap and wish to order the wallet as well, the shipping price from the wallet will be paid by us!  

Enjoy and Vive Le Tour!
