An English manufacturer of luxury apparel, accessories and perfumery, the Burberrys brand has a long and illustrious history. The founder of the brand was 21 year-old Thomas Burberry, the inventor of gabardine, who registered his company in 1856. Originally, the company produced clothing, footwear and headgear.
Burberrys Limited Liability Company first registered their trademark “Burberrys’ B Prorsum” with the Equestrian Knight Logo in 1909. The Latin word “Prorsum” means “forwards”, the equestrian stands for purity, nobleness and honor, and the shield visualizes protection. The black color on the Burberry logo represents strength and durability.
Noteworthy, the company began manufacturing pocket watches, costume jewelry, bracelets, cufflinks and tie pins only in 1982. The craftsmen traditionally signed their pieces with “Burberrys” and sold them on original Burberrys cards with the same Equestrian Knight Logo. Produced until 1990, these jewelry pieces are no longer available in stores. The new brand name “Burberry” (without “s”) appeared in 1999, and Fabien Baron, the company’s art director, has designed a new logo.
