About Mandarina Duck
The year is 1977. Two childhood friends, already long-standing business partners, decide to branch into leatherwear taking their inspiration from a brightly-plumed oriental duck that symbolises happiness and loyalty: this is how Mandarina Duck started out. The liveliness and spirit of this little duck were instilled into a breakthrough backpack, Utility, which changed the rules of the game.
Almost thirty years after such a brilliant start, Mandarina Duck continues to be original and independent, but also modern, coming up with new products, distribution choices and communication tactics year after year.
Mandarina duck history
The duck used by Mandarina comes from far away on the banks of the river Ussuri, on the border between Russia and China, where this little monogamous bird symbolises happiness and loyalty.
Its plumage is waterproof and brightly coloured. Its curiosity leads it to travel long distances.
It is the perfect icon for representing the Mandarina Duck style, made up of colours and the need to explore the infinite possibilities of the world, while remaining faithful to itself, its values of quality and complicity with consumers.
“O think that the service was fantastic. Very efficient. The item was packed well and arrived safely.”
“Very very efficient.”
“More chup-a-chups for sure.”
“It isn\'t something you directly can improve, but its something you should take up with your shipping supplier. Short version, the australia post contractor who delivers to my area is lazy - and sadly your parcel is the fourth time i\'ve caught him this year attempting to card the item straight away, rather than walking the additional four seconds to an unobstructed doorbell or door. If i\'d not caught him in the act, and given him a significant case of what for, i would have had to traipse down to the post office in the afternoon (presuming i got there before it closed), and be stuck waiting even longer for what is a bloody fantastic product.”
“Very easy to buy. I like the return policy if what you see isn't what you expected. But when i recieved my goods i wanted to keep it of course. The courier arrived earlier than expected. It was delivered next day.”
“You guys give awesome and cute surprises. Keep it up!”
“Things happened just the way they should when you shop online. Straight forward, fast, and with no complications. Very happy!”
“A breeze!!! Sooooooooo easy and super efficient and fast.”
“The design of the web interface allows for easy navigation and the refinement of laptop sizes made it a lot more effortless to shop for the right size backpack. The online chat system made asking questions about products much easier than waiting a day or two for email replies. When the backpacks were delivered, it was well packed and the inclusion of documents to make it easier for returns was very thoughtful.”
