  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. As you all know, I am the owner of the large ocean blue Mabel and the medium fuschia Mabel.
    I was having a look today and I noticed that the hardware is different. On my blue Mabel, the hardware in gold and shiny and on the pink it is brassy (as the brown was).
    I bought both bags from Mulberry shops, so why is there a difference in the hardware. I am confused. :confused1:
  2. i dont own a mable but i have heard this before if that helps i think some are diffrent.
  3. my denim mabel hardware is silver. I think it just depends on the style.
  4. I have a red which has shiny gold hardware & the aqua which has the shiny silver. I think different colours have different hardware.
  5. It is just that I looked at the large blue Mabel on Net-A-Porter and it has the matte brass hardware, not shiny. The photos MK showed of her Mabel that she returned showed matte brass as well. The medium Mabel is shiny on the Mulberry site though.
    And then to confuse me even more, on the Mulberry site (and some other members photos) the hardware is shiny and mine is matte brass.
    Very strange!
  6. The hardware on my fuschia mabel is gold....how random!
  7. both my mabels have different hardware - it must depend on what suits the leather and color the best.
  8. My medium fushia has matte gold (or brass) hardware and my medium metallic black goat has shiny gold
  9. Could the differences in hardware also be down to which country they were made in? :shrugs:
  10. My Aqua Mabel has the silver.
