Burberry’s heritage craftsmanship means luxury goods
that are meant to last.
The RealReal’s inherently sustainable
model is designed to extend the life
of luxury items.
Now we’re joining forces to support the circular economy
and build a more sustainable future for fashion.
“The RealReal shares our ambition to promote the circular economy and keep clothing in use for longer. We know that the enduring quality of Burberry pieces means their appeal and value is long-lasting. Through this new partnership we hope to not only champion a more circular future but encourage consumers to consider all the options available to them when they’re looking to refresh their wardrobes.”

VP Corporate Responsibility, Burberry
