The history of Barts dates back to the summer of 1986, in the blissfully beautiful town of Saint-Tropez. When Bart Koene witnessed first-hand the whirlwind that the concept of the ‘bandana’ created, he identified a gap in the market for headwear. Over the last thirty years, Barts has evolved into a brand with so much character and versatility. From winter accessories to Summer bikinis and swimsuits, each piece is unique and still withholds that same creative and iconic flare from 1986. After all, the headquarters is rooted in the super-cool city of Amsterdam. Amsterdam is now famous for its yarns and is a place of creative freedom; a narrative that so clearly seeps into the designs of today, tomorrow and the future of Barts.
