The Lily comes in both the original and medium size, and is available in a range of leather finishes including glossy goat, classic grain and natural grain.
Mulberry’s Amberley Shoulder Bags
Mulberry’s Amberley Shoulder Bag takes inspiration from British countryside pursuits, and borrows the ring hardware and satchel shape from traditional equestrian styling. Crafted from premium leather, the Amberley features a Silver Rider's Lock closure, refined belt detail on the side and a foil embossed Mulberry logo. The adjustable strap means it can be worn on the shoulder or hands-free across the body. Choose from black and oxblood colors, or bold yellow, red and blue designs.
How To Care For Your Mulberry Shoulder Bag
Mulberry has created its own high-quality products that are designed to help keep your bag looking its best. Whether you need to use Collonil Leather Gel or Collonil Lack Polish will depend on what material your Mulberry bag is made from.
Mulberry’s Collonil Leather Gel boosts the water-resistant properties of specific leathers. The solvent-free gentle gel can be used to create resistance against dirt and moisture on bags made from:
- Natural Leather
- Printed Leather
- Pebbled Leather
- Soft Spongy Leather
- Glazed Goat
- Soft Buffalo
- Glossy Buffalo
- Glossy Goat
- Spongy Pebbled
- Soft Calf, Nappa
- Reverse Croc Print
Featuring a built-in applicator, Mulberry’s Collonil Lack Polish is a gentle leather treatment that can be used to protect against damage caused by moisture and dirt. It can be used shoulder bags made from:
- Patent Leather
- Drummed Patent
- Creased Patent
- Glossy Ostrich
- Spongy Patent
- High Pebbled Patent
- Light Patent Leather
- Wrinkled Patent
It is recommended to test on an unseen small area first, before applying to your entire bag. Clean your bag with a soft damp cloth, and then apply the gel with a new white cotton cloth. Allow to dry for no longer than three minutes, and then buff with another clean dry cloth to restore the leather surface. Use regularly to maintain the appearance of the leather.
Mulberry’s repair center can also be contacted for everything from reattaching brand-embossed plaques and padlocks, to re-covering piping, fixing loose stitching and re-foiling gold logos.
- Are Mulberry bags made in England?
The brand was created in Somerset, England in 1971, and around half of Mulberry’s bags are still made in the two factories there. Somerset is also where Mulberry’s product development, repairs centers and Artisan Studio is based, where limited-edition products and collaborations are created.
- How do I authenticate my Mulberry bag?
You should be able to tell if your Mulberry bag is real by the overall quality of the product, from the material used down to the neat stitching, heat-stamped leather tab and metal disc engraved with the iconic Mulberry tree.
Mulberry products are sold by Mulberry retail and outlet stores, as well as authorized department stores, retailers and specialty stores.
- Are Mulberry bags sustainable?
Mulberry’s Portobello shoulder bag is the brand’s first 100% sustainable leather design. Expertly crafted in the UK at Mulberry’s carbon-neutral factories, it takes inspiration from the plastic bag and gives it an elegant yet functional update. Made from Gold Standard leather, this unlined bag uses recycled Epic EcoVerde thread and is finished with an embossed Mulberry tree. Mulberry’s Portobello comes in small, standard and oversized designs.
