Birth of by-bar, the brand!
It all started in 2008 when Barbara developed special earrings from India and were sold out straight away. Bit by bit she developed a complete women collection including accessories. Barbara stopped all other activities to fully dedicate herself to the brand we know today www.by-bar.nl goes live!
Barbara hires her first employee and moves from the kitchen table to her first small office. Besides working at her office, she also travels around the world, with a curious and cosmopolitan view, building relationships with craftsmen in Italy, Portugal, and India.
In 2013 by-bar moves to a larger office in Breda with a showroom and warehouse.
by-bar successfully presents her new collection for the first time at the ‘Modefabriek’ in Amsterdam!
The birth of the mini-me!
In 2015 by-bar celebrates the birth of the mini-me collection for girls inspired by her daughter. Also, we are very proud that the first Belgium agent came on board.
A bigger team!
by-bar has grown to a team of more than 25 people. A dream came true for Barbara, always wanting to create an inspiring workplace, where everyone can do what they love doing best: building together a strong business and beautiful brand.
Germany here we come!
by-bar is growing internationally and is not only distributed in the Netherlands and Belgium but is also taking steps into the German market.
After opening various pop-ups, another dream came true and we opened our first brandstore! For the first time you can find the entire women by-bar collection in Maastricht.
