BC Leather Hats are manufactured in Byron Bay, New South Wales, on the east coast of Australia. Bill Conner is the pioneer of leather hat production in Australia. Since 1969 Bill's leather hats have been made with love and care. The original BC Stockman hat is still the best-selling BC hat in Australia. The BC leather hats in the Outback Australia Shop are 'crushable', they can be crushed and folded and take up little space in your backpack or luggage.
