Tartan became popular when the British monarch, Queen Victoria from 1819 to 1901. Our Founder, John Barbour, was a Scotsman, From the early days of the company, he used tartan as a lining in his oilskin jackets.Barbour’s tartan was based on the Ayrshire District Tartan.

Today, Barbour has 7 exclusive tartans – Dress, Classic, Modern, Ancient, Muted, Cardinal and Sporting Tartan. The green, blue and brown colours in Barbour tartans were chosen to reflect the colours of the famous Barbour Wax Jackets; Beadale, Border and Beaufort.We still use our tartans as linings in jackets, but they also feature on quilts, polo shirts, footwear, and accessories.
