Parents of 14 children in outback Australia, Richard & wife Catherine Whillas constructed their own oilskin cloth using a 'wringer mangler' and a combination of 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 and 50 sons would together begin manufacturing outerwear garments for Australians then worldwide. These products would fall under the name "Kakadu Traders Australia". Nearly 50 years on and in it's third generation of Whillas family, Kakadu supplies tough, reliable products to over XNUMX 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.
