Introducing Maxwell Scott Bags

Handbag designers like Louis Vuitton appeal to me, and in fact I own my own designer handbag. I've had it for years and it will always be my favourite.

What I love about premium brands is the quality of the product. Yes, they're expensive but you can see, just by looking, that they'll last. Owning many handbags over the years I can now tell which will last days and which will last years. It is always the more expensive bags that last longer.

When I think about designer handbags the brands that come to mind are Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Chanel. British designers include Anya Hindmarsh, Vivien Westwood, Mulberry. A company hoping to become one of those well-known names is Maxwell Scott. A Yorkshire based company founded in 2002 by William Foreshaw that began life supplying briefcases to corporate clients in London. William noticed colleagues bringing plastic bags to work and saw a gap in the market for high quality, professional briefcases in the workplace.

After a family trip to Italy sparked an interest in the traditional craftmanship of Italian leather William began looking for the highest quality tannery to produce the leather for his bags. A highly esteemed factory in Tuscany was chosen, and the business took flight.

William Forshaw, Founder of Maxwell Scott Bags said, 

Back in 2002 I had a tiny vision and a passion for leather, and the business hasn’t stopped growing since! With well over a decade of professional design and craftsmanship experience under our belts, I felt a re-brand was necessary to appeal to a new generation of leather lovers.

And now they've re-branded, with a sleek new website, an informative blog and a range of products upcoming. I took a gander at the blog and enjoyed the Inspiring Monday posts, they're simple quotes but do the job.

I love the look of the leather handbags and my favourite at the moment is the ScalaS. With zipped compartments and sections for pens and a phone it's perfect. As soon as I'm looking for a new handbag Maxwell Scott will be on my list. Why don't you take a look at their selection here:
