Corporate Social Responsibility

Established in 1894 by John Barbour in the North East of England, Barbour is a 5th generation family owned British company built on the founding principles of quality, attention to detail, durability and fitness for purpose.

From the beginning and throughout our history, we have always been committed to the welfare, health and safety of all our employees and suppliers and to delivering socially and environmentally responsible products to our customers. We are committed to ethical sourcing and respect for human rights and we work hard to reduce our impact on the environment. As the market leader in manufacturing waxed cotton garments, we are proud to offer a unique global customer service whereby our customers can maintain their waxed cotton jackets by sending them to us to be rewaxed or repaired in order to sustain and extend the life of their jacket.
