How it all started
Our story began in the north of Portugal. In the 30 years since we were founded, we have grown steadily into the stable and substantial textile business that we are today. Our manufacturing premises now cover a total of 11,000 m2. Quality, innovation, creativity, ethics, sustainability and social responsibility have been our hallmark, ever since we started out along this path. We owe much to the guiding hand of our CEO, João Garcia, who leads the team of 140 that form the beating heart of Barata Garcia. Our strategic approach and in-depth know-how allow us to continue to invest in customised solutions for our fashion industry clients and partners.
Facts & Figures
We have a turnover of approximately 20M euros. Our flexible production capacity means that we can take on orders of any size. On average, we produce around 125,000 pieces/month. The end-to-end solution we offer our clients includes working up sample ranges within 72 hours and the ability to produce and make up as many as 3,000 samples a month.
In all our internal and external procedures, we treat each employee as the individual they are. We act globally and across the whole organisation, fostering the individual well-being and motivation of all our people and helping them build their talents. This commitment is reflected in our renewed SA8000 certification, under one of Europe’s most important standards for social responsibility.
Code of Ethics and Business Conduct
Social Responsibility Policy
If you would like to contact us with a suggestion or complaint, please fill out the form in the Contact section of this site.
We want to ensure that future generations opt for conscientious fashion. We implement circular economy behaviours and policies. These include reducing, reusing, recovering, and recycling all kinds of materials and energy sources. Proof of this is to be found in collections that are organic and sustainable, the continuous monitoring of our production processes and our certifications.
Attention to Detail & Innovation
We understand that the path we have chosen is one of enhanced responsibility and commitment. The close attention to detail that we apply to our relationship with our people is a key and decisive driver of our ability to compete. We work together, hand in glove, to optimise the processes and procedures involved in production. We are committed to investing, on an ongoing basis, in our production, technology and human resources.
Design & Quality
We are what we produce. We are the result of our creative ability to generate value. We make sure that we knit our vision and the client’s needs into each and every garment. We are design and quality. We are the result of our determination to rise to ever greater heights of quality and to outdo ourselves, at each and every stage.
Every day, orders are dispatched from our logistics centre and carry our vision of fashion to all four corners of the globe. This is how the quality embedded in our garments reaches our clients and the socially responsible brands that have opted to share this journey with us. The millions of square metres of knitted fabrics that we turn into garments are now out and about and satisfying customers in Spain, Germany, France, Italy, England, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Finland and the USA.
