The Burberry Story
Burberry is a global brand with a deep British heritage. Founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, our brand is underpinned by the strong values of our founder. Merging a passion for the outdoors, we continue to push the possibilities of exploration.
A 21-year-old former draper’s apprentice, Thomas Burberry recognised that people who ventured into the British weather were hampered by heavy, uncomfortable outerwear. He had a bold vision – to enable people to move freely outdoors.
