History of Berets
Did you know History of Berets?
Berets are the most gracefully timeless style of hat — at once capable of being fashionable and delicate, feminine and powerful, representing and intriguing.
In the 14th and 15th centuries, berets were mostly referred to as felt hats, and were largely common among the peasant classes and artists. The beret symbolized unity and togetherness in a group of people — it’s a significant part of a uniform that indicates a strong alliance.
It was during the 1800s when the term “beret” was first used to describe the special hat. The name comes from the Latin term “bearnaisberret,” which means a flat cap made of wool that is worn by farmers.
During the 1900s, the beret moved on from being worn by peasants and soldiers to being a fashion statement for women, as it proved to be something that was stylish besides being functional. Several years after World War II, the beret came back as a fashion statement and also as a political symbol for revolutionaries during the late 1950s until the early 1960s.
Tinks is proud of the revolutionary and evolved history of berets. We believe berets represent our culture of peasant, artists, army, and vintage fashion. Tinks is here to create awareness for berets and introduce them to the world in a more distinct design and colors.
