Blak Apparel is the brainchild of two best mates, Andrew Buchan and Kane Lowen (B.L.A.K). Who shared a passion for snowboarding and hunting out quality headwear and apparel to wear whilst in the mountains.
From the frustration of constantly finding poor quality or kooky designs, BLAK Headwear was born. They wanted to create high-quality headwear and apparel that would hold up to the harsh conditions of mountain life without compromising on design. While spending a few months living in a small room above a karaoke bar on the outskirts of Hakuba, snowboarding by day and drinking Japanese whiskey by night, the first season range of BLAK was born.
