Mulberry has launched its first fully sustainable leather bag and it’s so chic

Carbon neutrality has been a huge area of improvement for many fashion brands, and the Portobello tote is no exception. Made from start to finish in their Somerset factories, the heavy grain leather they’re producing is a by-product of food production.

Their move towards sustainability has also garnered a gold standard rating from the highly regarded Leather Working Group, which is pretty impressive.

The fashion landscape is slowly but surely becoming more sustainable and the Portobello tote from Mulberry is one of the latest additions we can look forward to adding to our conscious wardrobe.

The bag itself lives up to the Mulberry quality and class that we all know and love, but the slight tweaks make all the difference when it comes to its environmental impact.

Reducing the amount of materials they’re using, the bag has no lining and sleek, dual use handles, which also act as shoulder straps. Handy.

It was based on of the silhouette of a plastic bag, and it still keeps the same baseline shape, just with the less environmentally harmful impact. Think everyday use, but eco-friendly.

We’re also treated to seven, very wintery, very easy-to-add-to-the-shopping-basket shades. The Portobello tote comes in Black, Midnight, Chestnut, Nordic Blue, Crimson, Tangerine Orange and Mulberry Green, £795.

This launch is the first of Mulberry’s commitment to sustainability in their initiative, Mulberry Green, so we can expect a lot more of eco-conscious luxury fashion to keep coming our way. Yes, yes, yes.

Whilst we’re dubbing this the brand’s latest cult bag, Mulberry’s Iris tote has recently captured the attention of the fashion industry. Don’t believe us? Our Fashion Editor takes us through the delights of the Iris tote.
