the Story of Little Lids

The Story behind Little Lids

My father, a true Kerryman, left Ireland and traveled to Boston as a young lad to pursue the American dream.  Taking only two things with him, a bag over his shoulder and the Irish scally cap on his head. 

When my baby boy was born I know I wanted him to have a cap just like my fathers.  Searching all over Boston and the internet I cound not find one.  Nobody was making them or if they were, they were not very good quality.  Being made of pure wool with lots of hand-me down potential was a must.  And the story goes – Little Lids was born. 


Pure Wool and True Replica's

Our Little Lids caps are true replica’s of the one’s worn by the hard-working Irish/English immigrants.  Brilliantly made with 100% pure wool.  A little Boston luck and a drop of Irish magic is sewn into each cap.  Our caps are handed down from one child to the next or tucked away as a childhood treasure.  Little Lids caps have been sold to friends all over the world (over 30+ countries) and we stand behind each and every one.
