Maxwell Scott Leather
Maxwell Scott Bags is an English luxury brand. Fusing modern design with traditional Italian leather craftsmanship, it epitomises individuality, luxury, style and ambition.
Founded in 2002, Maxwell Scott Bags reinterprets the art of leather craftsmanship for the modern day. The brand’s beginnings can be traced back to a recreational tour of Italy by William's mother Jacqueline. The discovery of leather goods on family travels combined with strong entrepreneurial instincts saw the potential for a new breed of bag maker. Drawing on the rich Italian heritage of leather goods, founder William Scott Forshaw began to conceive an antidote to the throwaway fashion culture he observed elsewhere. In its place would be a dedication to the finest materials and a design philosophy influenced by innovative yet understated British design.
The quest for the brand’s first tannery had begun. A desire to honour traditional manufacturing methods and to source only the finest full-grain leather led William to the heart of the Italian leather industry in Tuscany. From that moment, every creation from Maxwell Scott Bags would be handcrafted by the region’s highly skilled craftsmen and craftswomen. Their craft complemented by their British design team who are responsible for the iconic shapes, styles and detailing of the bags.
The brand’s development has evolved to include handbags, luggage and accessories.
To this day Maxwell Scott Bags remains true to its original principles: individuality, luxury, style and ambition.
