About Kakadu:

Richard and his wife Catherine Whillas first constructed their own oilskin cloth using a 'wringer mangler' and a combination of oils and waxes found on the local land. Known for its functionality and durability, this cloth was ideal to protect them and their wharf equipment from the harsh Australian elements.

Strong canvas, refined oils & waxes and rugged cowhide are amongst the raw materials that give our products the guts to get the job done time & time again.
