Akubra honour the hat that traces its origins to Hobart in 1876, when an Englishman called Benjamin Dunkerley decided that the island colony needed its own hatter. We salute five generations of the Keir family, who have devoted themselves to making the felted rabbit-fur Akubra an Australian icon and seeing it proudly worn by Aussies of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. They continue to be made in Australia mass producing these quality products in Kempsey Australia.
