Basque Beret

The Basque beret can be traced back centuries, but was popularised in the 1920.

This style became very sought-afterin the 1920s thanks to overwhelming global demand for the modest style.

Basque Beret


  • Diameter: 27 cm

Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush will help remove dust and dirt. Brush the hat using short strokes, following the natural direction of the fibre.

Wet hats should be dried using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge.


Crafted from refined felted wool and partially lined, the Basque beret features the traditional stalk and leather trim to add further reinforcement.

Styling & Fitting

Berets are generally worn a quarter of the way down the forehead with one side of the beret down at a slant.
