For over a century, Akubra's fine felt hats have adorned and protected generations of Australians. Akubra started out as a small family operation in Tasmania and now employs over 90 trades-people in Kempsey, NSW, manufacturing thousands of hats each week. Our hats have become a vital part of Australia's identity; worn by soldiers, Olympians, politicians, personalities and of course, loyal, everyday countrymen and women.
Akubra produces a wide selection of fur-felt and straw hat styles to suit all people and all occasions, from Western and Country shapes through to casual and urban hats.
For 130 years Akubra has been handcrafting hats from start to finish, ensuring complete control of the production process and use of the best fur felt available, to achieve the highest quality standards in the industry. The superior rabbit fur felt used by Akubra reinforces its commitment to producing not only an exceptional looking hat but one of the most durable.
The Akubra Hat Factory is now based on the mid north coast of New South Wales in the town of Kempsey, having relocated from Sydney in 1974.
Akubra is an iconic part of the Australian landscape. Still 100% Australian owned and continuing to manufacture quality hats wholly within Australia.
