Mulberry Releases Its First-Ever 100% Sustainable Leather Bag.
As the fashion industry pivots towards a more sustainable future, brands are increasingly having to re-assess their eco-credentials.
And now British handbag brand Mulberry has joined the fleet of those evaluating their impact on the environment, as it has launched its first-ever 100 per cent sustainable bag.
Named the Portobello Tote, the bag is made from start to finish in the UK, at the brand’s carbon-neutral factories in Somerset, while the leather itself is a by-product of food waste.
The company has also pledged to give 100 per cent of net proceeds from sales of the bag.
The donation will go to the World Land Trust, an organisation which works to protect and sustainably manage natural ecosystems around the world.
The Portobello Tote has been in the works for the last few months and follows the brand’s recent men’s range which was made exclusively using ECONYL.
