In the fold of the rolling Mendip Hills in the English county of Somerset – ancient stronghold of King Alfred and heartland of the glorious Glastonbury festival – nestles the village of Chilcompton. It is here that the young entrepreneur Roger Saul founded Mulberry with a £500 birthday gift and a boundless passion for leather.
Today Mulberry is the leading British luxury leather and fashion brand, with a turnover of £163 million and over 126 stores. Inspired by the cool of the city and the craft of the British countryside, Mulberry products are created from the finest leathers and designed to be beautifully functional and enduringly stylish. The list of characters who have moulded the Mulberry brand over the past four decades reads like a who’s who of British creativity. Season after season Mulberry’s designers and expert craftsmen and women continue to create beautiful products that inspire and delight an international audience.
