Burberry: Brief History of the Iconic British Fashion House

Burberry is one of the most iconic fashion brands in the world. The British company is known for its classic and timeless designs. They are a global luxury brand that has survived through time thanks to their strong brand values.

Today, Burberry is famous for its iconic trench coats and classic beige plaid pattern that adorns many clothes, including shirts, jackets, skirts, and dresses.

The original Burberry was founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, who invented a waterproof fabric called gabardine that he tailored into clothes. They are still known for their wool cashmere, cotton leather, and even raincoats to this day. Their iconic check print has become a go-to fashion staple for men and women alike.

The company was passed down to Thomas Burberry's descendants and eventually sold to British businessman Christopher Bailey in 2000.

With over 160 years in the industry, there's no doubt that the brand perfected what they do best: creating high-quality fashion with innovative technology (like cotton-touch denim) that will last and stay in trend a lifetime. If you've ever worn Burberry, you've probably seen the signature Burberry check print. The check pattern, which was created in the 1920s by one of the company's founders, is not just a pattern. It's a symbol of British heritage, quality, and craftsmanship.

So if you want an outfit that will stand the test of time and make a lasting statement, Burberry is a perfect choice. And luckily for you, Burberry has everything from clothing to accessories, so you can find exactly what you need to make your statement.
