Akubra Australian Hats - Order Akubra from Within the USA
Akubra has been producing high-quality hats out of Australia since 1874. Founded by Benjamin Dunkerley who was a skilled milliner as well as an inventor; creating many new pieces of machinery to help in the hat production process. In 1904 the company was joined by Stephen Keir I who brought his experience in hatmaking to the business. Since that time the Akubra brand has passed from generation to generation of the Keir family and is still in the same family to this day. The company has grown from the 19 employees they had in 1911 to the hundreds they now employ. Akubra hats are produced in Kempsey on the North Coast of New South Wales and continue to be some of the finest hats in the world.
Akubra Hats are genuine fur felt hats made in Australia. Much as Stetson is the iconic American hat brand, an Akubra is a distinctly Australian Hat with a style all its own - and the quality of hand-made felt to boot. For over 100 years, Akubra has used the highest-quality superfine rabbit fur, luxurious hat linings, full-grain leather sweatbands and handsome trims to create hats that have become an unmistakable part of Australia's heritage.
