What is Buckram in Hat? Buckram Cap Meaning

Buckram is the stiff material or fabric behind a hat's front panels that provides shape and structure. The buckram helps to ensure the hat holds its shape over time and maintains a sleek appearance. In order to bind buckram to the hat's front panels, a combination of glue or an adhesive and sewing may be used. Buckram comes in various weights and thickness.

Not all hats use buckram - there are structured hats and unstructured hats. Structure refers to the form or shape of a cap. Structured hats utilize buckram to create a shape for the hat crown, while unstructured hats normally do not have buckram and are more relaxed and loose in the crown.
