Barmes is a New Zealand born, globally raised brand committed to improving the way people live, work, and move. Their aim is to create a more seamless travel experience, starting with their flagship luggage which helps keep work, personal, and travel items separate and organized.
Tournament Chairman John Hart believes that this partnership shows how Kiwi-born companies can reach global audiences through their partnership with the New Zealand Open.
“Barmes shares the values of the New Zealand Open and their luxury luggage piece perfectly complements what we are trying to achieve with the tournament.”
“We couldn’t be prouder to be partnering with a New Zealand company to help showcase their product to the world and feel honoured that Barmes has chosen the tournament as their launch platform for the new brand.”
Founder and designer of Barmes, Paul Barmes says, “work finds a way to reach us even while on vacation, and when we travel for business it’s always nice to have a few days to explore and play. I wanted to create a carry-on which would be ready for any occasion.”
“With the rich history and iconic name that is The New Zealand Open, we are honoured to be part of this year’s tournament and look forward to adding to the experience for both the partners and players.
