Brand Information

The incredible success story of Mulberry began in 1971, when mother and son Joan and Roger Saul founded what would go on to become one of the most iconic British lifestyle brands of the modern era. They opened up a factory upon the rural backdrop of Somerset in 1973 and it didn’t take long for word to spread about their superior leather poacher, binocular and dispatch bags. Their designs were inspired by country activities such as hunting, shooting and fishing and became popular around the world.

Managing to remain at the height of fashion and ahead of the trends for decades, the Mulberry brand has established itself as one of the leading handbag manufacturers in the world, with instantly recognisable designs that remain timeless.

As well as having offices in big cities such as London and New York, the original factory is still in action today, being the only leather goods factory of its size left in the UK. There is even a popular apprenticeship scheme in place that aims to encourage local young people to learn about production and the necessary skills that are required to excel within this field.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A pop of colour Having lugged around a Mulberry continental purse for many years I decided it was time to downsize so that I could use a smaller handbag. I decided on the French Purse in Neon Blue. The leather is great quality and the blue colour is beautiful, really vibrant and easy to find in my handbag. The photo on the website really doesn't do it justice. What I don't like is the pale beige lining, I just know it will get dirty very quickly. Also, the note compartment gapes when the purse is open. Yesterday, a cashier asked me to pay her with the two fives she could see in my purse rather than the ten pound note I was proffering. I will now make sure any notes are pushed well down inside. I do think Mulberry small leather goods are overpriced, at £275 this is expensive, no matter how good the quality. 06 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gorgeous purse! Love this purse, beautifully made and well designed. Bought the oak version to match my bag. Expensive but bought with Black Friday discount, not sure I would've paid full price for it but still love it and I'm sure it will last for years! Would've rated 5 stars if it was more affordable. 16 February 2016
