Kakadu's founder Richard WhillasParents of 14 children in outback Australia, Richard Whillas and his wife Catherine constructed their own oilskin cloth using a 'wringer mangler' and a combination oils and waxes found on the local land. Known for it's functionality & durability, oilskin cloth would be ideal for everyday use for their family against the harsh Australian bush.


Eventually they, together with 5 of their sons, would begin manufacturing outerwear garments for Australians and eventually worldwide. These products would fall under the name "Kakadu Traders Australia".

Nearly 50 years on and in it's third generation of the Whillas family, Kakadu supplies tough, reliable products to over 50 countries around the world. Strong canvas, refined oils & waxes and rugged cowhide are amongst the raw materials that give our products the guts to get the job done time & time again
