Boneteria Auloronesa is a small artisan French beret manufacturer, established by a very dedicated and passionate boinero, the former technical director of Béatex-Laulhère. Boneteria Auloronesa is dedicated to ensure the manufacturing of traditional berets continues in France, from the very birth place of the beret: Oloron Sainte Marie in the Béarn.
"Boneteria Auloronesa", it proudly states in the local language on the embroidered label, depicting the iconic two blue-horned red cows of the Béarn. Production is very small, by any standard (3500 units per year) and all made by just one very dedicated person.

South Pacific Berets stocks these berets in a large variety of diameters and sizes: headband-less berets ("bérets universel") in 9.5, 10, 10.5 and 11 pouces and berets with (an incredibly soft and comfortable leather) headband ("bérets garnis cuir") in 9, 10 and 11 pouces. The bérets universel are fitted with a liguette, a satin internal drawstring. This unique feature  enables the wearer to adjust the size perfectly, without having to stretch the beret first

Then there are the Grand Foulards Alpin, the large diameter berets based on the berets worn by the Chasseurs Alpins, the last line of defence between the head and the clouds. These foulards are in Universel version too, completely size adjustable. 

The bérets casquette are true berets with a peak, available in a large range of colours.

I dare say: these are among the very best available berets anywhere!

These berets are also available fitted with our own Boneteria Aotearoa label, in a slightly softer finish.
