Here is a peek at our operation:

Ordering from Akubra in Australia   

Akubra is the only major hat company making fur felt hats from start to finish. It takes between 3 and 5 months from when we place our orders to receiving the hats in Bothell, Washington.

We place large orders every month. Our large orders ensure that we get the best air freight rates and are able to keep our wholesale pricess as low as possible.

Akubra notifies us once the order is shipped, usually 2-1/2 to 4 months after our order is placed. We then monitor the shipments progress into the US. We pay all duty and custom clearance fees. In addition, we need a Fish & Wildlife permit to import the pure fur felt hats. We pay the annual fee for this permit, and make sure the paperwork is in order.

  We place orders with Akubra regularly.
Receiving Our Shipments   

It's all hands on deck when a shipment from Akubra arrives!

Akubra ships hats to us nested 12 or so to a box, two boxes further protected in a tie, to minimize freight charges.

We unpack the hats, checking that the hats were not damaged during transit and are as ordered.

 

  We receive large shipments from Akubra each month.
Quality Control   

Akubra has excellent quality control, and remove hats not meeting their high standards from our orders. We minimize the effect of such short shipments through our in-depth inventory and frequent orders.

Occasionally a hat is treated roughly during shipment. We steam or otherwise renovate such hats before receiving it into our inventory. If the hat cannot be brought back to it's original condition, we reject it, ensuring that our customers receive the finest quality hats as expected.

 

  Our Akubra shipments are inspected when received, ensuring that customers only receive the finest quality hats as expected.
Ready for your Order   

We offer offer stock service of our most popular styles of hats. Our minimum order is just 5 hats (assorted styles, sizes and colors), allowing our dealers to keep their inventory levels low yet offer a range of styles. Wholesale orders are generally shipped within 48 hours of receiving your order, with the hats nested to minimize your shipping costs.

Our new lines and low sales volume hat styles are offered on a limited stock service basis. Most small orders can be filled, but we do not carry sufficient inventory to fill large or unexpected orders. Please contact us early if you anticipate a special promotion requiring large numbers of one of these styles.

 

  Our minimum order for stock service styles is just 5 hats.
We are here to help   

If you have any questions or concerns, give us a call or drop us an email. We can recommend styles for your particular store or shop, and work with you if you have a special promotion.

We are open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, Pacific Time, closed major holidays. Wholesale orders are generally shipped within 48 hours, with shipments leaving Bothell Tuesday through Friday.
