Designed in Yorkshire and handcrafted in Italy, Maxwell-Scott’s leather accessories are made to last
Maxwell-Scott is a family-run business based in York, North Yorkshire focusing on creating understated, classic bags and accessories to stand the test of time. They commit to quality and great design to ensure every piece is an investment to be passed down generations. Their faith in their own products is evident as each piece comes with a 25-year guarantee.
The brand was started by CEO William Forshaw who was inspired by his mother’s love of Italian handbags and leather goods. Each year his family would holiday in Italy and his mother would bring home handbags that her friends would complement and ask if she could bring them one back on her next visit. This prompted a small handbag exchange business, which eventually inspired William to establish a brand that designed and sold high quality leather goods.
Maxwell-Scott has continued to grow and now sells across eight websites worldwide. As well as expanding throughout the world Maxwell-Scott has also evolved design-wise. From starting out selling mainly men’s classic leather goods they’ve progressed to producing trend-led pieces for men and women.
Their range now includes covetable items that are fashion-forward while maintaining the unrivalled quality at the heart of Maxwell-Scott. New colourways such as hot pink, blush pink and petrol blue step away from the classic colours of black and tan that are associated with the brand and cater to women looking for on-trend accessories. The upcoming A/W 19 collection features chain straps and suede leather; another step into the fashion conscious world.
Maxwell-Scott have recently launched their #MyCityMyBag campaign showcasing how their bags are versatile and can lend themselves to the lifestyles associated with varying big cities; the on-the-go hustle and bustle of London to the outdoorsy elements of Edinburgh. The campaign urges customers to share photos of themselves using Maxwell-Scott bags in their city to their social media using the #MyCityMyBag.
