British classic popular brand


Worn by the royal family, the Barbour brand is a true institution in the UK.

At the Paris boutique of the brand, boulevard Saint-Germain, Barbour remains as attached to its roots. The Beaufort oiled jacket and the quilted jacket Liddesdale , the two great classics of the label, occupy a good part of the shelves.

The Beaufort model of Barbour is produced in South Shields.

The Barbour International collection, focused on the motorcycle, has Steve McQueen for muse. At a time when most brands are signing new ambassadors every season, the British label prefers to continue referring to a mythical figure of the 1960s. However, it takes care also to dress James Bond in Skyfall !

The arms of the Queen of England, the Duke of Edinburgh, and the Prince of Wales, as soon as they entered the factory, recalled that Barbour was the official garment of the British family. A brand linked to the most traditional institution can not modernize so easily.

Launched in 1894, the first Barbour shop opens at South Shields. The brand then goes to the hunters and then to the walkers with the first walking jacket in 1964. Since 1972, the brand is headed by Dame Margaret Barbour and seconded since 1997 by her daughter, Helen.

The headquarters of Barbour established in South Shields, in the north of England, a few kilometers from Newcastle.

Approximately 600 jackets per day are assembled by about forty employees. Before it is in the hands of seamstresses, the cotton-American - is previously oiled in Scotland. Each employee performs the same task every day. The process goes from the sewing of the pockets to the packaging for sale.
