Will & Bear was born in 2015 from the place they feel most inspired; on the road. Alex (Bear) was looking for a hat that wasn't intimidating, was practical, long-lasting, and felt natural in the Australian outdoors. Loz (Will) watched Alex struggle to find something that he felt comfortable trying on. When we couldn't find what we were looking for, we set out to create it.
They designed our first collection from the ground up for both men & women. They took a simple approach to their designs while paying respect to what came before them to create a timeless aesthetic. After the quick success of our first range, they realized they needed to do ‘good business’, and delivering positive social impact on causes they cared about was a way for them to do that. They partnered with our first impact partner, Trees for the Future, to plant ten trees for every hat sold. Through the power of the collective good, they aim to give customers a platform to multiply our contribution through the small actions they take.
From its humble beginnings, they are proud of what Will & Bear has become. A global community of like-minded people united by a common thread, a thirst for adventure, and a love of nature. They love nothing more than seeing our hats in the wild.
Products can be divided into 4 parts, women’s part, men’s part, kids’, and collections. For women’s part, there are gift cards, wool hats, straw hats, bucket hats, caps, beanies, and accessories.
· Wool hat: a broad-brimmed hat of coarse wool felt. These hats are very warm but are not heavy at all. Wool is a great natural insulator and can have a little bit of a water-repellent punch, and these hats look great and feel great.
· Straw hat: a hat of many names, the boater hat is one of the most popular hats in the entire world. It is known as a boater hat, straw boater, skimmer, sennit hat, and many other colloquial names.
· Bucket hat: also known as a fisherman's hat or a pail hat, is a type of hat with a wide brim and a rounded crown. The name "bucket hat" is derived from its similarity to a water bucket. Bucket hats are typically made from cotton, wool, or synthetic materials.
· Cap: a flat headgear, usually with a visor. Caps have crowns that fit very close to the head. They made their first appearance as early as 3200 BC. The origin of word "cap" comes from the Old French word "chapeau" which means "head covering".
· Beanie: a small, round, brimless hat. It was fashionable for boys to wear beanies in the first half of the 20th century. Traditionally, a beanie was a flat, close-fitting hat without a brim, sometimes also called a skullcap.
· Accessories: something that can be added to something else to make it more useful, versatile, or attractive.
