To celebrate passion and dedication for British craftsmanship, Mulberry's flagship store will have a craftsman from one of their two Somerset, England factories, demonstrating the techniques behind the making of a Mulberry bag from July 21-23. In addition to meeting the craftsman, guests will have the chance to preview styles from the latest Autumn/Winter '17 collections including new bags the Amberley; guests will also have the opportunity to win a bag from the new incarnation of Mulberry's iconic Bayswater collection.

 

Born in 1971, Mulberry is the largest manufacturer of luxury leather goods in the United Kingdom. Mulberry's 600-strong team of craftsmen and craftswomen are based in Somerset and make 50% of their iconic bags. These artisans work alongside Mulberry's creative team, led by Johnny Coca, to produce accessories that combine traditional leather-making techniques with contemporary innovation. With over 120 stores worldwide, alongside their digital flagship, they truly are a global company.

 

Mulberry’s founder, Roger Saul, established the brand at his kitchen table, with backing from his mother. His sister designed their instantly-recognisable tree logo—both that and the name “Mulberry” came from the trees he would pass each day on his way to school.  All of this represented a love of nature and the importance of family. Today, Mulberry continues to celebrate those rich British traditions and examine them from a new perspective—a sense of the past reinvented with the spirit of now.
