A barretina is a traditional Catalan man’s hat. It is a hat in the form of a bag, made of wool, traditionally red or purple. In variants, it was worn by people in various cultures around the Mediterranean Sea, like Catalonia, Valencia, Ibiza, Provence, Corsica, Sicily, Sardinia and parts of the Balkans and Portugal.

Today, use of the barretina is not common in everyday life, but it is regularly used in folklore dances, or as a symbol of Catalan identity. Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí were great advocates for the barretina. And recently, there has been resurgence in wearing barretines, due to the movement for Catalan independence.

South Pacific Berets stocks barretines from three traditional manufacturers from Catalonia; made according to age old tradition in acrylic or 100% natural wool, "nude" or fully lined, showing artisan craftsmanship and offering great comfort.
