History of the wool beret

Originating in the Bayonne region but undoubtedly already existing in its primitive form in the Middle Ages, the woollen beret became, over the centuries, the emblem of France, along with the 'baguette de pain' and the Eiffel Tower! The alpine woollen beret was also the favourite accessory of shepherds and breeders in mountainous regions because, being very warm, it helped get through the winter or cool evenings without catching cold! While its colour was symbolic of the community to which those who wore it belonged, such as red in the Basque Country, the black woollen beret became the symbol of the Alpine Hunters and then the most widespread military headgear in the world. Today, the woollen beret is still worn and brings together the communities and lovers of local traditions such as during the famous festivals in the South of France.

Beyond its highly symbolic meaning, today the woollen beret is a fashion accessory which is very popular among young women who adopt the coquettish and vintage style reminiscent of France and its authentic charm. Chosen in felt, or in a large-knit for those who refuse to give in to the cold and who want to get away from the traditional woollen hat, the woollen beret knows how to reinvent itself in a more modern style. French houses such as Laulhère or Le Béret Français are now adapting the famous women's woollen beret by adding very feminine details that will make your woollen beret unique!
