The roots of the British label Barbour go back to 1894. This year John Barbour opened his first store in the port city of South Shields in the north-east of England. With the first weatherproof products, Barbour served port workers and sailors who were exposed to the harsh weather conditions of the stormy North Sea every day. The functionality and durability of Barbour wax jackets has remained to this day, making the brand particularly popular with those who expose themselves to the elements. In addition, Barbour has developed a brand that covers everything from flasks, sweaters and shirts to umbrellas in the unmistakable British style.
