The man and woman gavroche cap is said to have made its appearance in France in the late XIXᵉ century. The famous play ‘ Les Misérables”. Written by Victor Hugo, would be at the origin of the name attributed to this accessory. Indeed, Gavroche is an emblematic character of the work, an abandoned Parisian child living in the streets, often represented with a similar cap.

The author would have been inspired by a painting of Eugene Delacroix ‘Liberty guiding the people’, made in 1830, artistic tribute to the revolution. Borrowed from the eponymous character of Victor Hugo, this cap gavroche man and woman will become a symbol of revolt.

In its early days, the gavroche was a Peaky Blinders beret cap generally worn by the working class. At the beginning of the XXᵉ century, it would then be adopted by upper-class Frenchmen during their recreational activities, such as golf or tennis.
