Germany may not be the first country that comes to mind when thinking of (Basque) berets, but in fact, there is a long and strong tradition of beret-wearing and making in Germany. 

The former Berlin mayor Ernst Reuter, for example, was so dedicated to the beret, that even his statues depict him wearing a beret. Similar for writer and Nobel prize winner Heinrich Böll - he was hardly seen without a beret, or Baskemütze, on his head and almost proverbial, Marlene Dietrich is widely regarded as the woman that pulled the beret out of its "male only" territory.

At South Pacific Berets, we stock the traditional Baskenmütze from Luckenwalde, the innovative Baskenmütze with a lifted external rim and the wide range of berets by Kopka from Brühl.
