Heritage by Laulhere Anglobasque Berets

Made In France by Heritage by Laulhere

Laulhère,The reference name in French berets since 1840.

At Heritage by Laulhere we understand that quality requires an excellence that comes from human intervention and attention to detail.

The Beret… A national symbol for the French and recognized the world over, The beret is so closely knit into the French culture its
now a part of our DNA. Our goal is to protect and conserve this unique headwear by respecting a centuries old tradition, 175 years and
counting. Our manufacturing process has evolved in some aspects but 80%of the production is still hand crafted using machines
that where built on-site and a “know-how” handed down from generation to generation. Oloron-St-Marie was once the epicenter of
beret producers and today Heritage by Laulhere is the very last.


The « Basque » beret is in fact a “Bearn” beret (a neighboring region). It was the Bearn shepherds
first hand knit the beret and felted the wool in the mountain waters producing a remarkably robust hat that protected
against the harsh sun and cold winters.

The term “Basque beret” became fashionable when Napoleon III became intrigued by this curious hat on his frequent visits
to Biarritz where he built the beautiful Palais de Biarritz. Many of the laborers wore the useful flat hat for the same reasons the
Bearnshepherds did. Thus the term Basque beret became fashionable and because the Basque people are seasoned travelers the name was
exported all around the globe.

Our hand crafted production, our culture and our 175 years of existence make Laulhère a very unique brand
The Laulhère factory stands on the same spot since its creation in 1840, nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenées
Mountainsin a town called Oloron-St-Marie.

Laulhère is now the only remaining beret-maker in France, and has a unique and exceptionally ancient heritage.
With the takeover of its sibling Blancq-Olibet in 2013, Laulhère now embodies the entire tradition
with a mission to preserve this invaluable cultural practice as part of France’s heritage and is working to resurrect
the beret in France and around the world.
