The Barbour Way Of Life reaches people from all walks of life.

A truly British luxury and lifestyle brand based on life in the British countryside. The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the North East, with Barbour’s headquarters located in South Shields. Barbour’s distinctive and classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside,

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. Renowned for their collection of wax and quilted jackets which sit alongside a classic range of knitwear for all weathers. These are firm favourites at The Welsh Farmhouse Company for both  town and country.
