THE STORY OF OUR HERITAGE TRENCH COAT
The Burberry Trench Coat was first created by Thomas Burberry in the early 1900s after he invented the revolutionising rainwear fabric, gabardine. All Heritage Trench Coats are crafted in the UK at our internal manufacturing sites in Keighley and Castleford, which are both carbon neutral.
We employ more than 600 people across these locations, and every employee is paid at least the Living Wage Foundation’s hourly rate.
Each product is created using lower impact dyeing and finishing processes. We responsibly source our cotton, aiming to use 100% organic cotton by 2025.
Every Trench Coat undergoes 190 meticulous stitching processes before being assured through over 300 tests, parameter and quality checks.
Our Trench Coats are made to last. With the aim of extending each product’s life for as long as possible, our customers can opt to have their coats reproofed, repaired and/or have elements replaced. We use organic solutions for this service, which reduces its impact on the environment.
