Found MUJI BASQUE

Facing the Atlantic, Basque located at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains across Spain and France. Both the French Basque & Spanish Basque love to gather at the sea side and enjoy simple traditional food during the weekend and it became their common custom till now. Thus, its unique culture can be seen via those traditional Basque dishes, Bodega and Basque linen.

Beret

Basque beret hats were also used as an “umbrella” by shepherds on the Pyrenees long ago. Berets are weaved with pure Merino wool yarn and processed with fulling to give a felt texture. There used to be many beret factories but only a few remain now. Berets made in one of those factories are so flexible that they hardly lose their shape even if folded.

Bodega

When you order sidra in a bar in the old town of San Sebastián, it is served in a glass that is rarely seen. This delicate cylindrical glass is named “Bodega” which has the meaning of a cellar. When you pour a little amount of aerated sibra or txakoli into this light, easy-to-drink glass and drink it up at once, you will feel extra refreshed.

Cloth

Basque linen is often seen around the table. There is a saying that they were originally used on the back of cattle to get rid of insects. A basic type is ecru fabric with seven red or blue stripes, made by a craftsman using traditional weaving machine. Basque linen always looks new and beautiful as long as you use it.

Dishes

Cazuela are common round-shaped shallow dishes in Basque. They are often used for traditional food such as olive and paprika marinade, deep fried shrimps and pig tripe stew. Serve together with sidra in simple pitcher and Bodega glass. The pottery dishes with radial lines are often used in French Basque area, bringing a cheerful feeling.
