Kavu's formula for living and working is simple — build fun into everything you do. So that’s where it all starts. Kavu creates true outdoor wear, stylish bags, wallets, and other accessories so you can express yourself and spread your good-time attitude.
KAVU was born in Seattle in 1993. Back then, founder Barry Barr was selling the revolutionary Strapcap out of his car. Now, it’s a straight-up classic and Kavu is Local Worldwide. After almost three decades, the spirit of Kavu has never changed and has always been based upon: buckling down, pitching in, getting your hands dirty and creating gear that Kavu is proud to both wear and share with the world.
As an aviation acronym for ‘clear above visibility unlimited,’ Kavu’s reference is to when there is not a cloud in the sky and you can see clearly into the horizon. That feeling is what guides Kavu’s philosophy and the attitude they bring into their apparel. It means treating ever day like it’s special and getting out and doing what makes you feel the best. That’s a ‘Kavu’ day. Kavu clothing is an expression of this approach to life.
Kavu have a clear spirit to protect the planet and do everything they can as a company to reduce the negative and increase the positive. That means community, socially and environmental.
