The NB beret is a soft, round, and flexible hat made of wool. It is more comfortable to wear and easier to store than some rigid hats. It provides good thermal insulation, making it ideal for chilly days. With its simple and casual style, it can be worn with a wide variety of hairstyles and all styles of clothing for both men and women.
A staple in men’s wardrobes since antiquity, the beret has been worn throughout different eras in many regions of Europe. It was often associated with the working class, laborers, and military personnel. It also became a symbol of Basque identity.
The beret has seen increasing popularity since the early 20th century, notably thanks to fashion and film personalities. Worn by various social classes, including artists and intellectuals, it was often linked to creativity and free thinking, embraced by artists, intellectuals, and revolutionaries.
