about capsters

Back in 1999 Capsters designer Cindy van den Bremen graduated on a series of sport hijabs for a girl who got expelled from gymclass because of her supposedly unsafe hijab. To her surprise the problem of sports & hijab appeared to be universal.
Orders started coming in and she decided to launch the brand Capsters in 2001.

Capsters became a Ltd. in 2008 and delivers worldwide through this webshop, but also with a network of local resellers in over 15 countries worldwide. Capsters believes the hijab should not limit girls and women to practice sports wherever, whenever. In 2012 Capsters worked closely with the team of Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan to lift the FIFA hijab ban on the football field. Capsters designed the Capsters Football which is officially approved by FIFA and has a fastening device that has been tested and approved on safety.

We believe in the empowerment of women through sports. We showcase and work with role models worldwide through our social media to inspire other women and girls and to smash stereotypes. We work together with international organisations such as Shirzanan Global to showcase successful Muslim women.

Our business is built along the lines of trust and integrity and we hope that reflects in our communication with our wearers and fans. The Capsters designs have won a Good Design Award and are part of the permanent collection of MoMA in NYC, USA.
