I am thrilled with my purchases - I had searched for items similar to these two particular products online and in stores and was never able to find anything that featured this kind of quality and design until I came across your site (which is superb). Shipping was extremely efficient. Will most certainly be purchasing from you again.

5 Loved it!
I've bought this item for my mother, the parcel came really quick. The packaging was very pretty, the just by looking at it you can tell it's a good quality leather. the sewing and the insides of the make up bag was simply indicated quality. Loved it!!
5 Very nice
It looks pretty, it feels very nice, and it arrived almost 2 weeks earlier than expected. I’m very happy with it and I would purchase from them again.
5 Very well made
I wanted to treat myself to something nice. This bag is very well made, but I'm not sure it was worth the price. It also took a long time to arrive. It may have a corner on a small market but may not transition to a global market.

Perfection!

Why Is Our Leather Unique?
About Maxwell-Scott

Becoming the most loved bag brand in the world.

The story of our family-run business began in 2002 with a love for quality, long-lasting products. Our founder, William Forshaw, built Maxwell-Scott on the core pillars of superior durability and impeccable craftsmanship. Since that very day, we’ve made it our mission to bridge the gap between refined leather accessories and lifetime wear.

Inspired by the timeless charm of Italian leather and the classic elegance of British design, we use only the finest full-grain, vegetable-tanned Vachetta leather to craft our products. Our method is simple: honour generations of leather craft and obsess over every last detail.

Our industry-leading 25-year warranty combined with excellent customer service has earned Maxwell-Scott a worldwide reputation for superior durability and authentic quality. With our commitment to excellence extending beyond our product, every leather keepsake is quality-checked, hand-wrapped and delivered with care.

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.
