Back to where it all started. 25 years ago Bart sold swimshorts along the beaches of St. Tropez. Two decades later Barts is now the go-to outdoor accessory brand in Europe, with over 2500 selling points. For summer 2019 Barts is going back to the beach. The summer collection extends with swimwear for men, women and kids, designed with creativity and produced with the quality standards that you are used to from Barts. The collection includes bikini’s and bathing suits for women and girls as well as swimshorts for men and boys. The collection includes classic Breton stripes, leopard prints and beautiful trend colours. Of course, our sun hats, kaftans, (beach), bags and towels are back. .. now off to a long, lingering summer, out under the sun!
Barts is specialized in high quality clothing accessories for men, women and kids. We’re based in Amsterdam and design accessories to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer because Barts believes that life starts outside. From trendy beanies and hand-knitted scarfs to cool backpacks – every piece is unique. Even after twenty-five 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.
All our winter and summer accessories start with an idea. A simple sketch or doodle on a piece of paper. While ideas are everywhere they are brought to life by creative minds, day dreamers or those who need just a little bit of inspiration to create something new. It’s that simple, but not that easy. At Barts, we are proud to say we have found a great group of these people. A family of talented designers and graphic artists who love the product and who keep looking for fresh ideas and opportunities everywhere they go. If the team are riding bikes through the heart of Amsterdam, travelling the globe, watching movies or skiing down snowy slopes, it’s their mission to transform what they see into original items that make people smile.
For each Barts product you purchase, we donate an amount to support the first Vipassana meditation center in the Netherlands. Vipassana – which means ‘to see things as they really are’ – is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation.
