Founded in 1856, Burberry’s legacy is built its commitment to quality and expert craftsmanship. Our gabardine, a fabric which was invented by our founder Thomas Burberry and is still used to make our iconic trench coats today, is dyed and woven at the Burberry Mill located in Keighley, Yorkshire.


Castleford Mill

Burberry’s iconic Heritage trench coat is handmade in Castleford, Yorkshire, using over 100 individual processes. The most intricate of these is the crafting of the collar, which involves more than 180 stitches to create a fluid curve. It can take up to a year to learn the sewing technique alone – an example of skill and craftsmanship Burberry is renowned for around the world.
