Boneteria Auloronesa - They're Here!

It has been a long wait, but they're here: the brand new berets by Boneteria Auloronesa.
I have said it before and after unpacking this large order, I'll say it again: likely the best berets you can find in this world!
Boneteria Auloronesa is a small artisan French beret manufacturer, established by a very dedicated and passionate boinero, the former technical director of Béatex-Laulhère. Boneteria Auloronesa is dedicated to ensure the manufacturing of traditional berets continues in France, from the very birth place of the beret: Oloron Sainte Marie in the Béarn.
"Boneteria Auloronesa", it proudly states in the local language on the embroidered label, depicting the iconic two blue-horned red cows of the Béarn. Production is very small, by any standard (3500 units per year) and all made by just one very dedicated person.
South Pacific Berets stocks these berets in a large variety of diameters and sizes: headband-less berets ("bérets universel") in 9.5, 10, 10.5 and 11 pouces and berets with (an incredibly soft and comfortable leather) headband ("bérets garnis cuir") in 9, 10 and 11 pouces.
The 'Bérets Universel' are fitted with a satin drawstring, a unique feature that enables the wearer to adjust the size perfectly, without having to stretch the beret first.
