The Heritage Collection is Akubra's line of premium quality hats. The felt is produced from a selected blend of specially graded rabbit fur which allows a longer shrinking process. This process develops 25% more shrinkage, resulting in a denser and stronger felt. The band is made from the leather of one our Aussies greatest fish, the Barramundi, it's the natural leather from this fish that makes it very unique! Each and every band is different. Some dark, some light, some a bit thicker than the other so each and every one is custom-made and unique in every way!

About the brand

Akubra is an Australian hat manufacturer. The company is associated with bush hats made of rabbit fur felt with wide brims that are worn in rural Australia.

In 1874 Benjamin Dunkerley arrived in Tasmania from England and decided to start a hat making business in Hobart. His skills as a hatter were backed by his ability to invent machinery, and soon after his arrival he had developed a mechanical method of removing the hair tip from rabbit fur so the under-fur could be used in felt hat making. Previously this task had to be done by hand.

By 2015 Akubra has produced two million hats for the military.

Akubra Hats are still proudly Australian made in Kempsey.
