Born from innovation, Burberry is a global luxury brand with a rich British heritage. Founded in 1856, the brand is underpinned by a passion for the outdoors. Thomas Burberry invented the innovative rain-ready fabric gabardine to protect explorers from the elements. In doing so, he created the foundation for the iconic Burberry trench coat, which remains core to the business even today. As a values-driven brand, Burberry is committed to creating the next generation of sustainable luxury and believes that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to fulfilling its purpose.
