About Carkella

Carkella begins with the story of a real place: a sun-drenched estate on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River in Australia. As captivating as it is remote, this land inspires our imagination, our sense of wanderlust. And every time we leave Carkella, we’ve longed for a way to bring part of it with us.

Like Australia, our home in Colorado boasts some of the most gorgeous landscapes and unforgiving sun on the planet. Enjoying the natural beauty of both regions requires a respect for the elements and a wardrobe that reflects that thoughtful preparedness. At Carkella, our timelessly elegant hats embody the spirit of these breathtaking destinations. Their customizable emblems remind us of our favorite travels, while their easy-to-pack, sun-protective designs prepare us for the next great adventure.
