Barbour is a British heritage brand that was founded in 1894 by John Barbour in South Shields, England. The brand is known for its iconic waxed cotton jackets which are both functional and stylish. Barbour jackets are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and have been favoured by outdoors enthusiasts, hunters, fishermen, and farmers for over a century. The brand has expanded its range of products to include clothing, accessories, and footwear for men, women, and children. Barbour's collections often feature classic designs and traditional materials such as tweed, wool, and cotton, reflecting the brand's British heritage. The brand has also collaborated with other designers and brands, such as Adidas and Paul Smith, to create unique collections that blend Barbour's traditional aesthetic with contemporary designs. Barbour prides itself on its commitment to sustainability and ethical production, using organic and recycled materials wherever possible. Despite its heritage status, Barbour has remained relevant by adapting to changing trends and styles, while still maintaining its core values of quality, durability, and functionality.
