American heritage handbag and fine leather-goods brand Dooney & Bourke has launched into China via Tmall Global.

With more than 1000 retail stores throughout the US and 60-plus boutiques internationally, its foray online in China could be a hint at a physical presence to come.

Dooney & Bourke is known for its designs, materials and craftsmanship, says director of advertising and PR Liz Kane.

She describes the Tmall Global opening as a major milestone for the company.

In its new online store, the brand will offer Chinese shoppers a range of handbags and leather accessories such as wallets, phone cases and wristbands.

Founded in Connecticut in 1975, the brand has a client list including celebrities Indian actress Freida Pinto, singer Lady Gaga and actress Zooey Deschanel.

Formerly Taobao Mall, Tmall Global was launched by Alibaba in February 2014 as a crossborder marketplace for foreign brands and merchants to sell directly to Chinese consumers.
