Vegetable tanned leather from one of the best tanneries in the world. Our famous tannery is in Tuscany in the heart of Italy and still uses traditional methods. Our tanning process also follows strict rules and high standards, so that we can guarantee the highest quality leather.
At Maxwell-Scott, we act as an antidote to fast fashion. Therefore we design each of our products to marry style and functionality, drawing on the design heritage of Britain and the Italian leather industry. This is why our products come with a 25 year warranty - an absolute must for founder William Forshaw and testament to the manufacturing ability of our factory. We are also dedicated to the total satisfaction of each customer and provide outstanding customer service.
As members of The Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium, we pride ourselves on our signature leather being the finest available. At one of the most prestigious tanneries, our western cowhides are naturally tanned using tannins derived from vegetables or trees. We champion vegetable-tanning because this traditional and environmentally-friendly process results in a leather with a rich, warm finish. It will also only improve with use, developing a unique patina over time.
Each Maxwell-Scott piece is an individual creation. Skilled artisans in the heart of Tuscany handcraft each piece to the highest-standard using premium materials. With decades of knowledge in this family-run factory, the craftsmanship of each piece is undeniable. We insist as well on sourcing the best locks, linings and fittings to complement each design. With this, we promise that each of our products is built to last a lifetime.
