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.
