The chapka, the must have for winter !
Beret is to France what chapka is to Russia! The chapka is the traditional Russian hat which allows to cross the periods of great cold. This is why the chapka is the ultimate protection against the cold, protecting the entire head and ears, and allowing only the face to be seen. In reality, the word chapka simply means "hat", and if we want to be exact we must use the term ouchanka, which comes from the Russian ouchi meaning "ears". We can therefore find in its own name the main characteristic of this headgear: keeping the ears warm. Equipped with foldable parts intended to cover the nape of the neck and the ears, the chapka is very often made of fur and guarantees a perfect insulation against the cold
. La Chapellerie Traclet offers you a wide choice of chapkas, made from a variety of materials and in many colours... it will be difficult not to find the one that suits you!
