Kolpik is a traditional Jewish hat worn by Rabbis from the Glacial or Hungarian dynasty and their successors. It is a formal hat worn on occasions such as the Sabbath and major holidays.

It is a brimless, round, cylindrical cap with a flat crown and is made from brown fur. It is taller than shtreimel, another popular Jewish hat, but has a narrower circumference and less bulky in comparison.

Originally, it was part of the Polish tradition and a symbol of nobility and was adopted in Krakow Rabbi’s Jewish culture.
