Fashion editors’ best-kept secret: How you can save hundreds on a Mulberry bag

Always dreamed of owning a Mulberry bag, or are you keen to add to your existing collection?
  • We earn a commission for products purchased through some links in this article.
  • Launched at the beginning of April 2020 and for a limited time only, you can shop discounted Mulberry bags (and other items), directly from the brand, from the comfort of your own home.

    Large discounts on designer goods are usually saved for those elusive sample sales that we sometimes hear about – but never attend. Classic styles rarely get discounted. That’s why we were so excited when we stumbled upon the online Mulberry Factory Shop.

    Mulberry Factory Shop: how does it work?

    The offering at the Mulberry Factory Shop is quite impressive. You can purchase a Bayswater handbag, the brand’s most popular iconic design, in classic tan or black for £766. Previously £1,095, you’ll be saving £329!

    As with all expensive handbag purchases, it’s best to invest in a classic shade that won’t go out of fashion. We recommend choosing tan, black or a lighter nude colour to get the most wear from your purchase.

    If you are adding to an existing handbag collection or looking for something brighter, red is also a shade that will not date. Avoid bright ‘fashion’ shades such as orange and metallic turquoise, these are usually a one hit wonder created for the new season only. Although these seasonal shades usually offer the biggest discount, take a moment to decide if you will tire of the colour quickly.

    The Mulberry purses do not have a huge saving – most of approximately £95. But a discount is a discount right? All currently available in those classic colours you should look out for, black, brown, tan and nude.

    Stay in the loop

    With new shades and shapes being added to the Mulberry Factory website, make sure you subscribe to the email newsletter to keep up to date. From what we can tell the email newsletter is sent out on a Friday.

    The Mulberry Story

    Established in 1971, in Somerset, England. Mulberry’s founder, Roger Saul, established the brand at his kitchen table, with £500 backing from his mother. His sister designed the instantly recognisable tree logo. Both the logo and the name “Mulberry” came from the trees Roger would pass each day on his way to school. All of this represented a love of nature, the importance of family and the growth of a fundamentally British brand.

    Mulberry is a British lifestyle brand, internationally acclaimed for quality and design. Mulberry’s handbags – the Trout satchel, the Bayswater and the Alexa – have become contemporary classics, iconic examples of British design and manufacturing expertise.

    If you prefer to shop pre-loved items rather than buy brand new – we have some good news for London residents.

    When the UK government’s lock down is over and it’s safe to start shopping in store again, Mulberry also offer a pre-loved service, The Mulberry Exchange.

    A selection of pre-loved and archive pieces are available to purchase in selected stores. All pieces are carefully revived by Mulberry’s restoration artisans in Somerset. With a focus on rare silhouettes and limited-edition pieces, each bag will be valued and priced individually, with new drops arriving regularly. Pre-loved can be shopped in store only at the London branches, Bond Street and Gees Court.

    *The only way to avoid unwittingly purchasing a counterfeit product is to buy from authorised Mulberry stores or recognised stockists*
