A kippa, kippah or yamaka is a brimless cap or skullcap, made of cloth. Kippas (kippot in Hebrew) are worn by Jews to fulfill the customary requirement held by Orthodox authorities that the head be covered at all times.

The tradition to wear a kippa is not derived from the Bible itself. It is a custom which evolved as a sign of the Jewish recognition that there is someone “above” who watches every act.

Most synagogues and Jewish funeral services keep a supply of kippas ready for the temporary use of visitors who have not brought one themselves.

Prior to Pic-A-Kippa bursting onto the kippah scene, the only way kippa companies were able to customize a kippah was by printing an image or a logo onto a small part of the kippa, on one quarter of it. The way yarmulkes are made is by essentially taking four quarters and seeing them together. Then came along Pic-A-Kippa and turned the entire kippa on its head so to speak. 

Pic-A-Kippa is the first and only kippah company in the world to be able to print full size pictures onto the entire kippa. Now an image or logo can be placed over all four quarters, in a precise, seamless and stunning way. In addition, Pic-A-Kippa is patent pending, so no other company can create a kippah in such a way. As a result, the Bar and Bat Mitzva scene has been radically transformed. With 'mitzva swag' becoming more and more a must at every party, families now have a way to truly personalize their kippas in a completely new and unique way.
Forget small boring images or logo. Pic-A-Kippa has invented the true 'Picture Kippa' in a way never done before.
