Bucket hats are named well, as when worn they loosely resemble an upside-down bucket placed on your head. The brim of the hat is flexible and slopes gently downward, as part of the design from 1900 when it was invented in Ireland to protect fishermen from the sun and rain. Originally made from raw wool, they were waterproof, and the sloping brim design let rain drain off gently, keeping it away from the face.
Soon after, they started becoming more popular, made from different materials and worn by a wide variety of people.
They faded in and out of popular fashion but started gaining strong traction in the 1960s. Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy made them trendy, but Gilligan from Gilligan’s Island brought them truly into the mainstream. They had another resurgence in the 80s and 90s with hip hop acts like LL Cool J and Run-DMC wearing bucket hats in their music videos.
Today bucket hats are a mainstay of fashion, worn anywhere from festivals to family picnics. Their unique design with the deep crown and floppy brim mean they are a popular choice for custom promotional wear. Their flexibility in how and where they can be worn enables companies to get great value for money when used for promotional giveaway items, as they have so many uses. The deep crown gives a lot of space to add a logo or text, and they can come in a huge variety of colours and materials that suit your brand.
