BC Hats was founded by Bill Conner, who created Australia's original leather hat with a shapeable brim in 1969. His unique construction method and use of light weight leather revolutionized the Australian hat industry. For over forty years, BC Hats has created quality hats with innovative designs. These hats are handcrafted in Byron Bay, Australia.
In the spring of 2020, with Australia's businesses shut down due to the pandemic, Bill decided the time had come to retire. We wish him well in retirement, and thank him for years of great hats.
