The company is founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856. He subsequently invented gabardine. Breathable and waterproof, this fabric is a real revolution in weatherproof clothing. Later Burberry's tartan pattern is introduced as a lining for rainwear. Burberry formally acquires the Castleford factory, the birthplace of the Burberry trench coat, thus increasing its presence in the UK manufacturing landscape; a legacy that continues to this day Items for MEN and WOMEN are available exclusively at our stores in Viterbo and Vetralla.
