From rucksacks to despatch boxes, Birkin bags to Louis Vuitton luggage, Bags: Inside Out explored the style, function, design and craftsmanship of the ultimate accessory.
Mulberry is a British luxury lifestyle brand that was founded in 1971 in Somerset, where we continue manufacturing leather bags to this day. We employ a community of craftspeople across our two factories and are proud of the responsible approach we take in creating exceptional accessories that are truly made to last.
