We were founded in the north of Portugal, and we grew in the textile sector, building solid experience throughout the 30 years of our journey. Today, we are based in a total area of 11,000 m2. Quality, innovation, creativity, ethics, sustainability and social responsibility have been with us since we were founded by our CEO, João Garcia, who today leads the approximately 140 talents that work for Barata Garcia. The strategic approach and enormous know-how allow us, today, to continue to invest in customized solutions intended for customers and fashion partners.

With turnover of approximately 20M Eur, our flexible response capacity means that we can receive orders of varying sizes, and we achieve an average production capacity of 125,000 items per month. Our turnkey solution approach to customers involves capacity to present sample development in 72 hours, and produce 3,000 samples per month.
We recognize each employee as unique in Barata Garcia's internal and external processes. We act globally and across all sectors of the entire organization aiming at the individual well-being of each employee, enhancing their talents. As a sign of this commitment, we have once again renewed SA8000 certification, one of the most important European certifications in the area of social responsibility.
We want to ensure that responsible fashion is the choice of future generations and we implement “circular economy” behaviours and policies, to reduce, reuse, recover and recycle all types of materials and energy sources. The biological and sustainable collections, continuous monitoring of the production process and our certifications, are proof of this.

We are aware that our journey only makes us committed to more responsibility, rigour in the relationship with our entire community is a fundamental and decisive asset in establishing our business competitiveness. Always side by side, with constant optimization of productivity in processes and procedures, continually investing in the productive, technological and human resources areas.

We are what we produce. We are the sum total of our creative ability and to generate added value for each garment we design and that customers order. We are design and quality. We are the fruit of our passion always to add greater quality challenges and to improve on our results at every stage.
Every day, orders leave from our Logistics, destined for the whole world, to take fashion further afield. To take the quality of our items to our customers, to create responsible brands that travel hand in hand with us.
