My name is Pavel Barbořík and I do not dress for a while and do not wear dolls.I studied in Zlín on the Leather Industry. After school, I went through several technical functions in the footwear companies (Svit Zlín, etc.). In 2004, I decided to go back to the craft and my next fate was the production of leather handbags and leather haberdashery in my own workshop under the brand name "barbo". My workshop is small but equipped with all the necessary machines, thanks to which I am able to sew and produce almost any model of high quality handbags.
