The first Berba products were created in 1975 at a location near the city of Maastricht, in the south of the Dutch province of Limburg. The company started on a small scale, making women’s leather wallets in the founder’s home. The company’s name is an amalgam of the first names of the founder’s two eldest sons, Berry and Bas.
Production soon expanded and moved to a new building in Kerkrade, where the collection grew to include women’s handbags. At the time, the linings made entirely of calfskin were unique in the industry. Until the mid-1990s, production took place entirely in-house, enabling the company to build up valuable knowledge which it still makes good use of today.
In 2006, the company moved to a more spacious and modern building in Voerendaal. From there, Ber-ry (the founder’s middle son) and Tim (the founder’s youngest son) expanded the company further, with Tim focusing on design and Berry being in charge of sales and general management. The second genera-tion of this Dutch family company continues to ac-tively invest in the development of the brand.
Originally, Berba was only available in the Nether-lands; but more and more people in neighbouring countries like Germany and Denmark are discovering the brand’s eye-catching designs and excellent quali-ty.
‘We are proud of our past and we are thankful for the people who appreciate Berba. We are excited about the future and are working towards the further growth of the company, while still remaining true to the core values of the brand and the company.’
