The fashion world has been trying its best to become more sustainable over the years and one designer brand has just taken a big step in the right direction.

The silhouette of the tote is based on the design of a plastic bag and you can definitely see that in its structure. It features two looped handles and a long shoulder strap.

The bag currently comes in seven different shades – black, chestnut, crimson, green, midnight (a dark greyish black), blue and tangerine.

It’s available to buy online and in stores now. But, like all Mulberry products, the item comes with a price. In fact, the bag will set you back £795 in total.

It’s also worth noting that a few colours have already sold out online

Commenting on the launch of the bag, the brand’s CEO, Thierry Andretta, said: ‘Through our Mulberry Green responsibility commitments, we are continuing our innovative approach towards design and manufacturing in a conscientious way.’

Mulberry’s sustainable efforts have resulted in the brand being awarded a gold standard rating from the Leather Working Group – a pretty impressive accolade.

Hopefully this will be the first of many sustainable bags from the fashion brand.
