Burberry was founded in 1865 by former draper's apprentice Thomas Burberry. It's a brand that has become a part of British fashion heritage and is globally renowned, particularly for its iconic raincoats. The Burberry brand is also recognisable by its distinctive series of checks. The line of clutches from Burberry has been designed in keeping with the brand's stylish aesthetic, incorporating a number of the Burberry checks, such as the Horseferry check, as well as embellished designs and embossed leather. Velvet and suede are both fed into the designs in the range, as well as details such as chainmail and zips.
