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. And so the original favourite the Paolo briefcase was born.
Initially tailored towards corporate clientele, the transition from boardrooms to online allowed Maxwell Scott Bags to realise its potential and expand its collections.
