The 6 Best Places To Buy a Beret In Paris (For All Budgets)

It is often said that Paris is the capital of fashion, and rightly so. And what is its most iconic emblem, you may ask? Without a doubt, it’s the beret! Originally from the Basque Country, this hat is worn by tourists as a symbol of French fashion as well as by many French people themselves.

Here’s a guide about where to find and buy this precious accessory in Paris, for all budgets and all styles!



First, let’s locate all the stores on a map:



Small Budgets

Souvenir shops

If you don’t want to buy a hat that you will only wear a few times per year, you can also find berets in Paris that will only cost a few euros — mainly in souvenir shops.

You will find these shops on every street corner in the most touristic areas of Paris.

In these shops, you can find berets alongside Eiffel Tower keychains and Blue White and Red scarves. A beret should cost around 5 euros –  rarely more than 10 euros.

Here are a few addresses of souvenir shops:

  • Faubourg Montmartre Souvenirs, 24 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre
  • Eiffel Souvenirs Shop, 33 Av. de la Bourdonnais
  • Top Souvenirs, 9 Rue de la Huchette
  • Souvenirs de Paris, 182 Rue de Rivoli

The available models are rather simple, often made of cotton. They come in bright plain colors.

The quality might not be the best and no brand or label is visible, but they will do the job for people with small budgets or simply those who do not wish to spend more on a beret.

High-quality Berets

Physical stores where you can find a beret are becoming increasingly rare. Nevertheless, three major hat makers still exist and are known for the high quality and high finish of their berets.

Maison Laulhère is the reference in terms of elegant French-style berets. The brand has a main Laulhère store and 5 other independent boutiques called Héritage. These independent boutiques are entirely dedicated to berets.

In Paris, you can choose between:

  • The main Laulhère boutique is located at the back of the courtyard, 14-16 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré
  • The independent boutique Héritage par Laulhère is located, 7 rue la Vieuville.

The Héritage beret line offers high-quality berets that come in all colors and designs to suit all tastes. You will find several ranges of products: traditional and classic, original shapes, plain or patterned, in wool or in cashmere…

Laulhère berets are of a much higher quality than those from souvenir shops: they are stronger, tougher and the inside has the brand’s recognizable Héritage logo.

There is a wide selection for both men and women, and even some children’s models are available.


  • starting à €49 for an authentic beret
  • starting at €99 for a beret with patterns on it


Le Béret français (The French Beret)

For a 100% French-made beret, you need to buy at Le Béret français.

Le Béret français offers a wide selection of berets for men, women and children. The models are especially diverse and will suit all tastes and styles. You will find classic and timeless berets, original shapes, exclusive patterns, and even an ecological beret line comprised of berets made of recycled materials.

The store offers affordable prices without stepping down on the quality of a locally-made beret. We particularly appreciate the €18 cotton beret from their ecological line!

Where to find them in Paris:

  • Le Béret français space on the 6th floor of Galeries Lafayette


  • Classic plain beret made of wool starting at €26
  • Fashion design beret starting at €40

Courtois Paris is a hat maker that offers many items such as caps, bobs, bonnets as well as berets.

Their collection is rather small, having only ten different models, but it is of high quality. You can still find a classic beret in virgin wool, cashmere as well as more fancy models with a veil or a fur pompom.

Here are their two Parisian addresses:

  • The main store Paris Rive Gauche: 8, rue de Babylone, 75007 Paris
  • The workshop store Paris le Marais: 17 rue de Sévigné, 75004 Paris


  • Classic beret made of virgin wool: €59
  • Cashmeer beret: €92


Retailers and Resellers

You don’t have to buy your beret from a specialized hat maker shop to get a nice high-quality beret.

Sometimes, museum stores and cultural sites have berets for sale. Fashion stores and accessory shops sell their own merchandise, and specialist brands sometimes use retailers who sell berets in their own stores.

This is the case, for example, for Le Béret français which does not have a physical store. You can find their berets at:

  • Galeries Lafayette, 60 avenue des Champs Elysées
  • L’Espionne shop in the shopping center Boutiques du Palais, 2 Place de la Porte Maillot
  • Bon Marché Rive Gauche, 24 rue de Sèvres

This is probably the case for many other brands, but not all hat shops list their retailers on their websites. You will undoubtedly be able to find berets in many different fashion stores that are not at all specialized in berets or hat-making.

If you want to make sure you are buying a quality, brand name beret, it is best to go to a specialty store, or check the labels to make sure you are buying an authentic beret.
