The story of Barts started in the summer of 1986 when Bart sold his hand-sewn swim shorts along the beaches of St. Tropez. It proved to be a big hit. 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. From that moment Bart started to focus on headwear. And only a few years later the brand Barts was born. Three decades later Barts is the outdoor accessory brand for adults and kids in Europe, with over 3.000 selling points.
