Brand Story

The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family-owned business remains in the region, with Barbour’s headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields.

Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jacket is still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside with over 100,000 jackets processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations each year.

Today, Barbour remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning looking bag I saw this bag for the first time in a restaurant and I couldn't stop myself asking the owner what brand it was... and it's been love at first sight. And yes, it's subtle and doesn't scream Barbour all over the place. Although it is a rather typical, classic piece of Barbour waxed cotton in a beautiful dark olive green. It seems to be the right size for many occasions, from going to the gym, to a weekend away (possibly in summer when you're not carrying too much with you) and to go to work when you need to take a change of clothes with you. The bag is so nice that a colleague bought it as well the same day he saw mine delivered to the office! 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super bag! Student daughter delighted with her Xmas gift. Very classy! 20 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag Looks so much nicer than the pastel / flowery bags that are usually on offer to us women. I' m using mine for carry on baggage. Very pleased with the quality. 15 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase Was looking for a stylish bag for a weekend trip to Madrid that I could take as hand luggage. Ideal for the job and looks great. Highly recommended! 24 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for few days I bought this for my partner and he loves it. He goes away every now and again for a few days and this is just perfect. 06 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful It did exactly as it was supposed to. A smart overnight bag which allowed me to carry iPad, notes, toiletries and clothes. I was concerned that it would be a little too masculine but the previous reviews convinced me otherwise and they were correct. I was able to travel on the tube and open the bag at the meetings without the inconvenience of opening a case in an office. I am now going to buy a matching coat. 16 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sturdy weekend bag This is a lightweight but very sturdy bag that I have used in all weather conditions & thrown into luggage racks on numerous trips. It remains in excellent nick due to the high quality of the materials & construction. As a woman, I was worried that the bag would look too masculine for me - but when you see it in person, you realise it is suitable for men & women. I particularly like the button down sides that give the bag a nice shape when its full & the classic Barbour tartan print on the lining fabric. I can tell this bag will last for years & only get better with age, as it is made from the sort of material that looks better when 'worn in'. Worth every penny. 08 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic holdall! Extremely happy with this purchase. The overall build quality of the bag seems to be excellent compared to other cheaper alternatives, definitely worth the extra money. 13 February 2013
