WHAT IS BARTA

Barta is a creative association of three hard-working people. Having gathered years of experience in the bar industry and design, drive from the result, adventurism in finding new solutions and the desire to bring to the bar culture something real, functional and aesthetically pleasing, in 2017 we began to create bar tools for bartenders and their guests.

Our name comes from the name of the Hutsul instrument “bartka”, which, depending on the situation, was used in the Carpathian Mountains as a pikestaff or ax, and later became a sacred amulet. In Ukrainian culture, bartka is a symbol of courage, maturity and virtuoso mastery of their craft.
