The History of Kangol Bucket Hats and Beyond

Kangol was founded by Jakob Henryk Spreiregen, a Polish-born Jewish man who emigrated to England in 1915; the brand began manufacturing hats in London. Becoming popular for its basque berets imported from France, it didn't take on the name Kangol until 1930, when Spreiregen coined the name by combining the K for "knitting," ANG for "Angora" (a kind of wool), and OL for "wool." 

Kangol started expanding soon after, and, with the help of Spreiregen's nephews, factories opened in England's Frizington and Carlisle. Kangol eventually began appearing in the US. After gracing the head of LL Cool J, who was well known for his slick head gear, countless folks flocked to cop the style, including other well-known rappers like Run-DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Slick Rick, and Missy Elliott. The Brooklyn hip-hop group UTFO even had a member named Kangol Kid.

Today Kangol continues to produce a wide range of headwear that crosses generations and cultures. Beyond hip-hop and heritage, Kangol represents a cultural fusion of fashion, taking the very best of British heritage and retro hip-hop and mixing it with modern trends that appeal to new generations without discarding, abandoning or alienating its original fanbase.
