Our History

A French brand since 1962

The Pipolaki brand was created in 1962 in the Pyrenees by André and Jean Olibet. It is the fruit of a 200 year tradition in  berets Making.  Through their passion for sports, they begun making hats for Annie Famose, the Paloise of the French ski team, and decide to call them "Pipolaki". The first models, knitted with beret wool, were renowned for their unequalled comfort and hold.

Our Success-story

The story was launched at the Innsbruck Olympic Games in 1964 when Marielle Goitschel won the slalom gold medal and made the Paris Match headlines with her gold medal and her Pipolaki hat. Jean-Claude Killy, France’s alpine ski teams, cross-country skiing, biathlon ...  have all contributed to the success of the tricolor brand.

Today, the Pipolaki hat is not only for skiing, it has become a real fashion accessory in France and internationally.
