Mulberry Handbags and Bags

Designer Handbags - Mulberry Handbags

In 1971 Roger Saul created the Mulberry handbag company in the UK with his mother. Mulberry started life as a British lifestyle brand, but it now sells luxury designer handbags, bags, purses, menswear, womenswear, and women's shoes. It has also gained recognition worldwide for their fine leather goods, a success which has been emulated by another UK designer handbags manufacturer Radley handbags. They must be doing something right as they recently announced a surge in sales of over 78%.

Mulberry's strength resides is their luxury designer bags - like the Roxanne and the Bayswater and - which have become fashion classics. Mulberry hired British designer Emma Hill as creative designer in 2008 and she has since started to building a loyal following of discerning clients for her refined and innovative styles.

Mulberry bags are not particularly cheap but they are not outrageously expensive either, ranging in price from a few hundred dollars or pounds to a few thousand. In addition, if you buy a few shares in the Mulberry Group you are entitled to a 20% discount on their bags and handbags etc... in some of their stores.

Just make sure you they send you a shareholder discount card as you will need it to claim your discount.

Mulberry makes its designer leather bags in the UK at its factory in Somerset and has plans to increase the size of the factory and make even more bags, which is good for the local workforce. Mulberry also trains apprentices so that local youngsters can learn a useful skill.
