The story of Barts started in the summer of ’86 on the sunny beaches of Saint Tropez. Bart sold his hand-made shorts to the sun bathing rich and famous. With his hard earned cash he went on a journey, travelled the world and met some amazing people. It was when he swapped the sandy beaches for the snowy mountains that the brand really took off.
Today, Barts specializes in clothing accessories and is based in Amsterdam. We design accessories for adults, kids and babies. Even after twenty years, our designers keep surprising us almost every day with funky ideas, original combinations and unconventional thinking to transform functional accessories into something special. When that happens, we know we’re on the right track.
After being away for more then twenty years, Barts reintroduced the summer collection with a range of hats, scarfs and bags. After more then twenty-five years after selling the first shorts. the thought still remains the same: “Barts believes that life starts outside. By letting creativity lead we make high quality clothing accessories available for everybody, everywhere and for every season.”
