Just wanted to confirm that i received the satchel. I am really impressed with the customer service I have received and the effort that you have gone to in order to get the satchel to me on time. I bought it as an early wedding present for my finance. I gave it to him this evening and like me, he absolutely adores it, the smell of it is amazing!

Extremely pleased that, despite the bad (though seasonal) weather, the satchel arrived safely today, and in time for Christmas. I'm extremely pleased with the Jesolo satchel - it was exactly what I was looking for. Even more though, I would like to pass on my sincere appreciation for your excellent customer service. Should the opportunity arise, I will be delighted to recommend your company to others.

I'm really pleased with my new briefcase. It's perfect, very elegant and it has a beautiful colour. Oh, and the service is excellent! I'm sure I will be back for another Maxwell Scott product.

I needed a stylish, yet practical small satchel for university and work. The Jesolo 2 satchel fits this purpose perfectly, the quality of leather and construction is second to none. Customer service was efficient throughout, allthough there was a lenthy wait (4 weeks) for the satchel to be delivered. Overall a very satisfied customer, highly recommended.

My experience with Maxwell Scott was excellent. I live in the United States and had been searching for a briefcase for some time. I came across the Maxwell Scott website using Google. At first I was interested in the Battista satchel. I sent an email to Maxwell Scott inquiring whether my 15 inch Mac would fit. They responded quickly and asked for the exact dimensions of my computer. After I sent the measurements, they determined that my laptop would not fit and recommended the Jesolo 2 instead of the Battista. I placed my order and received the bag in a matter of days, despite the overseas shipment. I could not be happier with my new briefcase. The construction is excellent and it is, quite simply, beautiful. The service I received from Maxwell Scott was extraordinary. The next time I need a bag of any sort, I will return to Maxwell Scott.
5 High Quality
I really love this bag. I'm so glad I bought it.
5 Beautiful, inside and out
Received this as a 40th birthday gift from my wife. Beautiful, the quality and workmanship inside and out was flawless! Just the right size as a work satchel, with ample space for documents and a laptop. And the smell is just heavenly... Would recommend unreservedly.
5 Lasts a lifetime
I purchased this bag for work in 2008 and it's still going strong. I take it to work every day on the train, full of stuff. It gets carried between buildings and left on the floor in pubs but only looks better with age. Despite catching the strap in an underground station gate and ripping it down the seam, a quick repair had it as good as new. My only complaint is that the buckle on the strap has worn through twice, but they've repaired the strap free of charge on both occasions.
5 Amazing craftsmanship and beautiful leather
I got this bag one year ago today and absolutely love it. The leather looks feels and smells amazing. The fittings are top notch and it has more than enough space for your daily/weekly requirements. I use it for business during the day and casual during the weekends. Unfortunately for me mine got stolen so if you do get one guard it with your life!!
5 Great Product!
Loved the satchel. Amazing design and quality.

A really classy bag! Very well made and smells divine!
5 Great Product - will buy again
Overall, this is an exceptional bag. While there are minor annoyances, it is a fantastic purchase. First, the good. The leather quality is incredible. It really does exude quality. The interior finishings are of an equal quality. Aesthetically, this is a beautiful briefcase. For the negatives - the pen "slots" are small. This is fine if you are carrying a $1 BIC, but if you have a quality pen it will not fit in the slots. It's slightly annoying having a relatively expensive briefcase that can't hold high quality pens. Second, the outside buckles closing the satchel flap could be a fraction tighter. The bag tends to "droop" forward when packed full. Overall, the quality far exceeds any negatives. A gorgeous piece.
5 Getting better with age... the bag and hopefully the user
A gift from my wife a few years ago. A bit battered and bruised but still beautiful the Jesolo does the job with understated style and functionality
5 Great Product - Great Service!
Order arrived this morning bang on time, and was everything my extensive reasearch suggested it would be. The feel, finish and colour of the leather is sublime; and my only ambition is to live long enough to see its guarantee expire!

Great product. Everybody comments on how smart it looks. It's also deceptively spacious which is really helpful!

The service was excellent and Maxwell Scott kept us informed throughout the delivery process. The standard and design of the leather bag purchased was all as detailed by the company. I am usually the most sceptical and cynical of purchasers, but would use Maxwell Scott in the future.

Great bag, that I bought as a gift for my boyfriend. I'm happy with Maxwell Scott's service, even though delivery took a couple of weeks longer than expected. Customer service replied quickly to all my requests, and the bag's recipient was very happy.

We travel a great deal and my husband likes to keep all relevant documentation/paperwork together. Looked abroad in vain for a suitable bag for him...he is disabled and his hands give him problems dealing with openings/buckles/fasteners. He is absolutely thrilled with his purchase...it is fantastic for him...so easy to open and all the sections are readily accessible...not to mention the quality, finish and appearance of the bag. Thank you! All problems now solved!!
5 Impeccable
I had always wanted a really nice leather bag, and Maxwell-Scott delivered. The leather is of a quality I’ve never seen or experienced before. I don’t think they give themselves enough credit on the size of the interior of this bag. I was a little worried about being able to fit a laptop + charger in the bag, but there is no issue whatsoever, and I have space for an umbrella, a battery charger, a writing tablet, and much more. I think it’s worth noting that anything you store inside it will smell amazing as well. It’s also not too heavy if you opt to carry it.
5 The item is understated but obviously very high quality craftsmanship and I am really looking forward to see how the leather ages - couldn't be more pleased with it

OUR SIGNATURE LEATHER
Two decades have passed, and we are still committed to using our unique, unparalleled Vachetta leather that only one tannery possesses the precise formula to produce. Our prestigious leather is certified by the Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium, a certificate of quality awarded to less than 1.5% of Italian tanneries. By showcasing their trademark and quality assurance, we honour the heritage of skilled artisans.
Finest Full-Grain Vachetta Leather
Often imitated but never matched, our high-quality full-grain Vachetta leather is unrivalled due to three essential components:
1. HIDES - we source only European hides reared in perfect conditions, ensuring tough and durable leather with a quality finish.
2. TANNING PROCESS - we use a natural centuries-old technique of vegetable-tanning which is both organic and sustainable.
3. TANNERY - Our tannery is based in the heart of Tuscany, arguably the best region in the world. It has been awarded countless awards and delivers some of the 1.5% best leather in Italy. These factors combine to yield a premium, durable leather with exceptional visual appeal.
A Unique Patina
As time passes, a captivating patina will develop, subtly transforming its colour and aesthetic as it gracefully weathers the elements, a highly desirable characteristic of pure untreated leather, leaving a legacy of its journey. Unwanted marks and surface scratches can be effortlessly removed due to our slow process of drum-dying the leather all the way through, unlike faster methods of hand and surface dyeing. Our deep, earthy tanned leather is of unparalleled quality, allowing it to retain its natural strength, character, and properties without any alterations or corrections. In contrast, coated full-grain leather loses its appeal as it ages in as little as 12 months.
Sustainably Tanned With Chestnut Trees
We're committed to using a centuries-old technique that has remained unchanged for thousands of years. The process of vegetable tanning requires considerable time and patience, as our hides immerse themselves in drums for 60 days. We’ve always believed that the reward of sustainable, premium leather is worth the wait. With only 10-12% of the world's leather being vegetable-tanned due to quicker and cheaper methods of tanning becoming more prevalent, we are proud to honour the traditions and legacy of authentic leather craft passing the exceptional benefits onto our customers.
Guardians of a Rich Legacy
We honour an authentic approach to tanning leather, using Chestnut extracts to embrace a sustainable and organic method of dyeing, preserving a traditional practice that dates back thousands of years. The deep colour and natural scent of our signature leather are a testament to this ancient technique, enabling wearers to fully immerse themselves in the beauty of nature.
Crafted To Last a Lifetime
The combination of these factors forms a dependable yet timeless work of art, which will accompany you for a lifetime. To demonstrate our confidence, we offer an industry-leading 25-year warranty.
