Originating in the ’60s as a high fashion item the bucket is now an iconic Aussie favourite that you’ll commonly see being worn by people outdoors or at festivals. It’s popular because of its unique style and comfortability. Now organisations usually targeting young adults, teenagers or children use branded bucket hats as a marketing gift to ensure they’re remembered.
A promotional bucket hat is a headwear item with a downward-sloping brim that wraps the whole way around the hat. The crown will also commonly have metal eyelets for ventilation. These bucket hats are customised for branding or marketing purposes commonly with a print or embroidery decoration and then given away or sold as a merchandise item.
Bucket hats are popular for a variety of industries such as kindergartens or childcare centres giving away bucket hats with their logo to the kids. They are also popular as a trendy fashion item for young adults and teenagers commonly decorated with a band or artists logo and worn to show support.
Bucket hats are commonly made from heavy brushed cotton but are also available in blends such as polyester/viscose or from Teflon treated jacquard. They offer great sun protection due to their large brim, see the product page for more information regarding each style.
