Etchea Vintage

The Etchea has got a new lease on life after it was abandoned after many decades of good use at the end of the 20th century. A label that beautifully captures the spirit of un-pretentiousness that was so typical of French berets and beret-wearers during the last century: an old peasant wearing a beret and clogs trudging along with his faithful ass, the 'etchea' (Basque farmhouse) pictured on the background. Great berets for workers, farmers and every day wear.

Reinstated exclusively for South Pacific Berets - available in 28 and 30cm diameter, Black and Navy.


Chirola - Foulard Basque

Chirola is an old, long vanished label that has been reinstated for South Pacific Berets. A label that scores high on the "un-pretentiousness scale". Literally chirola means "worthless money" in Argentine slang, or a coin of 20 centavos.  Here it stands for practicality, durability and quality - heavy duty great berets with a beautiful old-time label at a small price.

These 11p/31cm foulards are available in a large range of sizes between 55 and 61 at $47.50 only.
