Collection: Barts

How it all started

It’s the summer of 1986. Bart Koene is successfully selling hand-sewn swim shorts on the très chic beaches of Saint-Tropez. One of the girls helping him out, wrapped a piece of fabric around her head to protect herself from the sun and soon people asked if they could buy this "cool" bandana. There it was, the eureka moment. Bart made the decision to focus on headwear and only a few years later, the brand BARTS® was born.

BARTS® has grown over the last thirty years. That’s because we believe that the pieces we create today should be the vintage of tomorrow. BARTS® is well-known for winter accessories such as beanies, scarves and gloves, but since a few years we offer also a complete summer assortment with bags, hats and swim- and beachwear for women, men and kids. A whole new and exciting chapter. From comfy beanies to feminine bikinis, every piece is unique.
