Barbour’s managing director, Steve Buck, said of the release: “We are introducing mobile technology cases into the range as a direct response to our customers who have been Proporta who are renowned for their expertise and creativity in this area. By incorporating our iconic quilting and tartan materials into the cases, it makes them instantly recognisable as Barbour products and they are a natural accompaniment to our clothing and accessories as we continue to evolve as a global lifestyle brand.”
