JBC is a Belgian family-owned fashion retailer. The company was founded in 1975 by Jean Baptiste Claes, hence the name JBC. Since 1985 his children Ann and Bart joined the business and they are leading the business now as a solid duo.

JBC has 144 shops in Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany. We make and sell clothes for the whole family (children, women and men)

As a family run and owned business, we are committed to our sustainable principles. JBC is a value-driven company that wants to produce fashion with respect for people and environment. Step by step we find new ways to implement these principles in our purchasing policy and our decision making.

At JBC, we care for our planet and the people living on it.



As a value-driven family business, JBC strives to continuously integrate sustainability into its business. JBC wants to make a nice product but with respect for our Planet and the People who live on it. In a world that is globally connected we can’t do it alone, therefore we engaged in different Partnership, Fair Wear Foundation and the Accord on fire and building safety in Bangladesh are just two of them.

We will never stop learning and improving our sustainability efforts. Our goal is to continuously grow into a more sustainable company. Find out more on our website : www.jbc.com
