The success story of Barts begins in 1986 on the Côte d'Azur. The Dutchman Bart Koene spend the summer in St. Tropez and started to sew colorful beach shorts and beach pants. They literally teared them out of his hand and the company Barts was born. Soon he expanded his assortment with accessories such as beanies, hats, caps and bags and thus became successful worldwide. Today, Barts is best known for its wide range of beanies and hats. From the colorful knit hat to the noble cashmere hat there is something for everyone.
