Kaas is a project created under the umbrella of Aa (Autodidacts & Associates) Studio. Caps and bucket hats created under the project are published in a fashion editorial style digital zine; intended to highlight often-overlooked narratives from Mitchell’s Plain, a township in Cape Town. 
 
Co-creator Keenan Oliver told Bubblegumclub, “I was born and raised in Mitchells [Plain], which forms a large part of the cape flats. The only time you hear/read about these spaces is on the news. Stories of violence, gangs and drugs but never of the people who live within all of that. All I want to do is tell a different story with the space/resources and access I have.” 
 
Showcasing the headwear in a format commonly known for its do-it-yourself quality like a zine is unconventional and unique. Oliver goes on to explain this combination by saying, “This ties in with the thought behind streetwear itself, which is expressing your thoughts and ideas through the resources available to you.”
