Parkhurst Stories

In 1926, the founder, Louis Borsook, was running a chain of Millinery stores and decided he wanted to make headwear as well as sell it. While travelling in Europe he found Beret machines that had been abandoned in a barn and that led to the Canadian production of the signature and world renowned Dorothea Basque Beret.

Now run by Steven Borsook, Louis grandson, Parkhurst is sold around the world.
