A proud Dutch brand from each stitch to every fibre, Barts produce premium quality headwear, gloves and accessories designed and sourced in Amsterdam - all tailor-made for skiing, snowboarding and cold city winters.
In the summer of 1986, Bart Koene was successfully selling hand-sewn swim shorts on the chic beaches of Saint-Tropez. One of the girls helping him wrapped a piece of fabric around her head to protect herself from the sun and soon people were asking if they could buy this "cool" bandana. Right then and there, Bart decided to focus on headwear. A couple of years later, the brand BARTS® was born.
Nearly forty years on, BARTS® continues to grow, sticking to their roots by designing every hat, beanie, scarf and ski/snowboard glove in Amsterdam, with passion and care, always using the highest quality, locally-sourced materials. Because they believe the pieces they create today should be the vintage of tomorrow.
BARTS® collections are sold all over Europe, and we have a top selection of their latest hats and beanies here at Absolute.
