Online Hat Retailer, HartfordYork.com, becomes Laulhère Beret’s
In response to the news that Laulhère, the last surviving beret-maker in France, does not ship consumer orders to the USA, online American hat retailer, HartfordYork.com, announces its extensive collection of authentic Laulhère Berets.
FRENCH CAMP, CA -- March 2014 -- Laulhère is the one company remaining in France that still makes that most quintessential of French headgear, the beret. Unfortunately for beret lovers in America, Laulhère does not ship consumer orders to the US -- so online hat retailer, HartfordYork.com, is delighted to be Laulhère’s ecommerce partner in the USA offering an extensive collection of the authentic French berets.
Hartford York president and CEO, Steve Singer, says he’d already been offering Laulhère berets on his men’s hats site. “I’ve long been a fan of the quality and authenticity of Laulhère berets,” he says. “When it was confirmed that Laulhère was the last surviving beret-maker in France and that they’re not shipping consumer orders to the US, I was really glad that we had an existing relationship making it possible for Americans to buy Laulhère berets from our extensive collection at HartfordYork.com.
Laulhère has been the symbol of the French beret since 1840, and its workshops remain in the foothills of the French Pyrenees to this day. The company’s biggest customers include the French army, United Nations and NATO, with half its planned production of 200,000 berets in 2014 going to everyday wearers of the traditional cap. Made from nearly 875 yards of merino wool and fitted inside with a ring of leather, the berets are extremely durable, water resistant and protect wearers from ultraviolet light.
