Mulberry

< Back to Directory of Fashion Designers

 

The British fashion company was founded in 1971 by Roger Saul in Somerset, England. Specialising in small leather goods, ready-to-wear items and home interior ware, the brand is most famous for the ‘Bayswater’ handbag.

Taking its name from a sought after area of London, the Bayswater was London’s answer to the Hermès Birkin handbag. Being quintessentially British, the Bayswater proved to be fashionable in both town and country. Recently seen on Meghan Markle, the Bayswater has had a revival and is now more popular than ever.
