Mulberry Factory Shop
The Old School House
DescriptionMulberry’s history is steeped in luxury leather craftsmanship. Founded in 1971 in the English countryside, nestled among the rural towns and rolling fields of Somerset, Mulberry has built a reputation for balancing creativity and modernity with the traditions of leather craft and manufacture to inspire and delight customers across the world.
During the decades of the Seventies and Eighties Mulberry was considered the first luxury lifestyle brand, pioneering the desire for Le Style Anglais. That quintessentially English attitude to country attire elevated the brand’s reputation for rural craftsmanship and style delivered with English wit, with collections including quilted fishing and poacher bags and classic outerwear. Mulberry’s heart remains in rural England, where The Rookery is based. The Rookery is the epicentre of bag production, where an ever-expanding team of highly skilled craftsmen and women produce bags with the highest attention to detail and quality.
Beautifully crafted leather bags are why Mulberry is now internationally known and desired. The start of the 21st century saw the birth of one of the biggest bag icons, the Bayswater, and many years later it is still a beloved and best-selling style.
