Mulberry has launched the Portobello Tote, its first 100 per cent sustainable leather bag.

Made entirely in the UK at Mulberry’s carbon-neutral Somerset factories, the bag uses heavy-grain leather – a by-product of food production – from a gold-rated tannery.

The Portobello is unlined and stitched with Epic EcoVerde thread, a recycled polyester fibre. The streamlined tote also features double loop handles and a shoulder strap, so it can be carried or worn across the body.

“Our starting point for this family was the ultimate everyday item, the plastic bag – functional, but throwaway. The Portobello keeps the beautiful utility of this silhouette and elevates it into an elegant tote that is practical and, more importantly, made to last,” said Johnny Coca, Mulberry creative director.

The bag will be available in store and at in a range of signature and seasonal shades: Black, Midnight, Chestnut, Nordic Blue, Crimson, Tangerine Orange and Mulberry Green.
