OUR BC HAT BRAND IS ALL HAND-MADE IN OUR BYRON BAY, AUSTRALIA FACTORY.
We offset a percentage of our carbon footprint by planting and maintaining 2000 native hoop pines on our family owned property about 35km from the factory.
Our factory is a fume free zone. We use only nontoxic glues in our manufacturing. Australia is a very worker friendly country and we all have lots of fun creating shade for people.
Our small, family run operation uses mostly Australian and New Zealand raw materials.
