Mark Cross is an American brand that specializes in leather goods. Founded in Boston in 1845, the company was originally a saddlery. It began its leather work with the manufacture of saddles, bridles and harnesses for horses. This valuable heritage has made the company an essential touchstone for those looking for accessories made from the finest materials. Its expertise became more widely known in the early 20th century when the owners, Gerald and Sara Murphy, expanded their product line to include luxury leather goods when the company moved to New York. Bags with a timeless design, understated, sophisticated briefcases, and purses with unique style are now exported around the world.
