Since 1938, beginning with the first Kangol style, the knit and blocked wool beret, Kangol has produced quality headwear which has become famous around the world. Throughout history musicians have adopted Kangol. From the Beatles, to the early days of hip hop, to today’s diverse and varied musical genres, Kangol is a part of the scene. Kangol has always continued to develop new shapes, fabrications, and production methods to bring you the very best in comfort and style.
Did you know that the name Kangol has absolutely no association with Australia or Kangaroos? The name came about as an acronym of the original material - Knitted ANGora woOL - and the logo of a Kangaroo happened as customers were asking for the "Kangaroo Hat brand"...hence a Kangaroo logo to make everything easier!!
Granville Island Hat Shop is super proud to carry this iconic hat brand.
