Cultivating its deep taste for the arts, American brand Mark Cross has lived up to its reputation for excellent and refinement across the decades. Established in 1845 by Henry W. Cross, the saddlery house enjoyed growing success, driven by high-quality craftsmanship. Patrick Murphy's takeover on the death of the founder allowed the brand to expand in an unprecedented way. Its leather goods for women, collections of shoppers, leather suitcases and bags have gained international renown, adored by well-known artists and actors. In 2011, the company was revived with new women's designs inspired by artisan craftsmanship and vintage archives, proving the timelessness of its most beautiful classics.
