At Maxwell Scott Bags, we take immense pride when creating our ‘signature’ leather. It truly is a beautiful and versatile product, which only the most prestigious fashion houses choose to utilize.
Our renowned tannery is located in the heart of Tuscany and masters a traditional art. Members of the highly esteemed ‘Italian Consortium of Leather Tanners’, they abide to strict standards and rigorous quality checks to ensure the production of the finest leathers in the world.
Using methods that have been passed down through generations for over 200 years, our craftsmen use the long and complicated process of vegetable tanning to create our luxury leather. Combining artisan techniques with new technology, this process takes nearly forty days.
We make it our responsibility to only select premium full-grain Italian hides, and take great care in understanding the production processes behind the products. Full-grain leather is the thick top section of the cowhide and is considered the finest type. We don’t correct or alter the hides before tanning, which leaves the natural folds and marks visible, and also beneficially leaves the hide in its strongest form pre-tanning.
The secret of our ‘signature’ leather lies in the use of tannins, which penetrate deep into the raw hides. The tannins we use originate from the bark of chestnut trees, and help to enhance the quality, feel and longevity of the leather. Through use our leathers develop a beautiful patina, which reveals warm and natural tones. This special characteristic ensures each and every product is unique. This traditional process also allows marks and scratches to be buffed out effortlessly.
We like to keep it natural, so no chemicals are used in the process of dying our hides. This means that the products we produce are environmentally friendly, something which is very important to us. Not only this, but our tannery recovers, recycles and reuses as many substances as possible used in the tanning process, thus producing very little waste. Our tannery is as passionate about tanning hides as we are about making leather bags.
We’re so confident about the longevity and quality of our leathers that we offer a 25-year warranty on every product.

"I already have a Maxwell Scott workbag in tan leather which is the envy of my colleagues. The more it's used, the better it looks. and this weekender matches it perfectly. I wish I'd bought this years ago instead of fannying around with lesser products. I am just waiting for another reason to buy my next Maxwell Scott bag Max 'Rolls-Royce' of luggage and I absolutely ADORE it. It's more tactile than my lover, more beautiful than even I was in my misspent 'yoof' and whole lot more practical than the pair us put together. With a lifetime guarantee I wish I was 19 instead of 59. Eat yer heart out Louis Vuitton - class beats gas any day.."

"This is the second leather bag I have purchased from Maxwell Scott. The first gets used every week, thrown in the boot of my car and I have had this for 4 or 5 years. Apart from losing one of its feet, it looks as good today as the day I purchased it. Outstanding quality, beautifully made, and it still smells nice!"

"I just wanted to say a big thank you. I ordered some luggage from you for a special Christmas present for my partner. I did not open it before Christmas day - so had no idea if it resembled the picture on your website. The expression on his face on Christmas day when he opened the box was priceless. He is absolutely delighted with his gift and I am absolutely delighted with your contribution to my special Christmas present for him. Many, many thanks - and please DO NOT lose the human touch!!"
