UK-based luxury fashion brand, Mulberry has unveiled its "Lowest Carbon Collection" of bags as part of the latest chapter of Mulberry Editions, a series of collections launched in honor of the brand's 50th anniversary this year.
The "Soft Small Amberley Satchel" was created using the world's lowest carbon leather and crafted in the brand's carbon-neutral Somerset factory utilizing 'Hawthorn' heavy grain leather in collaboration with Muirhead, a member of the Scottish Leather Group.
The collection is made in the UK with a pioneering hyper-local, hyper-transparent "farm to completed product" supply chain approach, highlighting Mulberry's "Made to Last" ethos, which was introduced earlier this year, marking a bold commitment to transparency and traceability.
Muirhead got all of the raw skins for the new bags from the United Kingdom and Ireland, and tanned, processed, and finished them at their leather production facility 15 miles outside of Glasgow, Scotland.
Mulberry CEO, Thierry Andretta, said that they’re happy to unveil Mulberry's first capsule collection of regenerative 'farm to completed product, As they continue to expand a network of regenerative and organic farms to provide the hides used to make our leather across the UK and Europe, the collection highlights the company's future. This reaffirms Mulberry's bold commitment to the future, which was detailed in their Made to Last manifesto, which was released earlier this year to commemorate the company's 50th anniversary.
Muirhead managing director, Nicholas Muirhead, said that they’re happy to forge a strategic collaboration with global British brand Mulberry, to support their sustainable and responsible business ambitions. Muirhead created the world's lowest carbon soft and supple leather for the fashion sector, lowering carbon intensity even in the high-end market.
Muirhead produces the world's lowest carbon intensity leather, with only 1.1 kg of CO2 per hide, thanks to the tight collaboration with local farmers and a groundbreaking thermal energy facility that generates heat from waste. It also saves water by purifying and recycling 40% of wastewater back into the leather production process.
Mulberry's collaboration with Muirhead lays out the brand's ambitious plan to transition the business to a regenerative and circular model, embracing the full supply chain "from farm to wardrobe," and developing a blueprint that can be replicated with a network of trusted partners. It also supports the company's goal of achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2035.
The new "Soft Small Amberley Satchel" bag is available in four colors: cornflower blue, coral orange, black, and charcoal, and will be available in shops and on the Mulberry online starting today, November 22, 2021.
