Accessories brand Strathberry of Scotland is launching in China next year.
The brand, which opened its first standalone store in Edinburgh in July, will be stocked in two Estate Retail stores in Shanghai and Beijing. Estate Retail specialises in British luxury products and Strathberry will go into the stores before the Chinese New Year on January 31.
Strathberry of Scotland managing director Guy Hundleby said the move had “huge potential” for the brand but it would move cautiously.
The Edinburgh-based company, which was established in April 2012, produces Peeblesshire tweed and English bridle leather bags in Spain. Bags retail from £150 to £600.
Department store business Estate Retail, based in Qingdao, northern China, has 11 stores and is adding a further five in 2014. Strathberry has seven UK stockists and is “actively seeking” partners in the US.
