The cotton berets by Arandú are heavy-duty work gear; comfortable, hard wearing berets that are worn by gaucho's all over Argentina, Chile and Brazil. Fitted with a solid cotton lining these berets protect from the sun, keeping the head cool in the heat while easily withstanding the occasional shower. The standard beret measures approximately 31.5cm in diameter; the beret with the woven diamond pattern is slightly smaller at approximately 30.5cm diameter.

The 31cm Boinas Chinita are 90 gram summer weight pure cotton/cotton lined berets in vintage gaucho colours.

Arandú Jaspeada

The 'Boinas Jaspeada'  are great heavy duty workwear, but also make a fashionable statement for city folk. Similar to a heather pattern in wool berets, these 31.5cm (29.5cm in the grey models) "Jaspeada" berets have a solid colour mixed with a small amount of cream and grey coloured threads, resulting in a heather, marbled effect.  Fitted with a printed solid cotton lining, these berets are hard to beat in quality, comfort and durability. Available in Black, Navy, Red and Green Jaspeada @ $52.50

Arandú Vintage Cotton

The Arandú vintage berets come in a 30cm diameter in red and green @ $49.60.


Arandú's Boinas Crochet

Boinas Crochet

Arandú's 'boinas crochet' sits among the most comfortable cotton berets to be found.
Crochet is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn using a crochet hook. The name comes from the French term crochet, meaning 'small hook'. The salient difference between crochet and knitting (which is the usual method of manufacturing berets), is that each stitch in crochet is completed before the next one is begun, while knitting keeps many stitches open at a time.

Berets that have the soft touch of corduroy, easily stretch to (even the largest) size, fitted with a solid cotton lining in a 30cm diameter.

Available in 6 4 colours @ $52.50.
