Will & Bear | Make hats for the road and create positive impact along the way.

In true entrepreneurial style Lauren Williams and Alex Knorr created what they couldn’t find – a hat for the road that made a positive impact.

You name it – beanies, bucket hats, outback, straw, kids hats and caps.. they do it all. They have a huge range today and are totally committed to pushing the boundaries of sustainability.

They have partnered with and helped plant 200 Hectares of trees to date! They also ensure all the headwater is made of natural, biodegradable or recycled fibres. 

If you’re a barefoot wandering conscious shopper these hats are made for you! We loved this interview with Loz and Alex, everything from their can-do attitude to the way that they finish each other’s sentences and their passion for a low impact life on the road

This whole thing has been us fumbling around making mistakes and learning from them. That’s how you do it, right?
