how it all started!
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. We are proud to have special German agents on board.
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 and girls by-bar collection in Maastricht.
