akubra


akubra
A shallow-crowned wide-brimmed hat, especially one made from felted rabbit fur. It is a significant feature of rural Australia, of politicians (especially urban-based politicians) travelling in the outback, and of expatriates who wish to emphasis their Australianness. Now a proprietary name, Akubra was first recorded in 1930. Its origin is unknown, but it is possibly from an Aboriginal language.
