Etchea Vintage

The Etchea label 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 his faithful mule, the 'etchea' (Basque farmhouse) pictured on the background. Great berets for workers, farmers and city-folk for every day of the year.

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



Rafale Vintage

The 'Rafales' are the latest in a series of reinstated old, 1950's, beret labels, fitted in a specially made range of densely knitted black Basque berets honouring the qualities of the once so popular Rafale - highly water resistant and storm-proof. 

These berets come in three two diameters: 28, 30 and 32cm.  


Chirola navy in 27, 29 and 31cm⌀.


Chirola Universal

The Chirola is an old, long vanished label that has been reinstated for South Pacific Berets. The sized Chirola Foulard Basque was re-introduced late 2018 and has become an instant bestseller.
Now the range has expanded with one-size universal models in a range of diameters (27, 29 and 31cm ⌀) in navy.

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.


Chirola - Foulard Basque

These 11p/31cm foulards are available in a large range of sizes between 56 and 61 at $47.50 only.
